Do You Knit? Are You Left-Handed? Do You Forgive Me For The Spider Picture? Because I've Got A Scorpion Picture That I Haven't Used - And Don't I Get Credit For That?
Now, anyone who know me, knows that I am left handed and as much as I like to knit, I have only ever learned one type of stitch. I only purl. The purl stitch is usually the back on any smooth knit sweater. So if I want a smooth knit, I purl going one direction and then change hands and purl going the other direction. This is kind of hard, and not my first choice for a craft project. So mostly I just purl, use beautiful yarn, and make long, thin scarves. Nice texture and really quick to do.
So here are some pictures of that pretty yarn and some antique yarn winding equipment to (hopefully) make up for that spider picture. (Which I am deleting in a couple of day - it is seriously creeping me out.)
