I read a tutorial on this blog (that I found on this blog). It was very thorough and it made me think “huh” why not try it. It was simple enough, there are walnuts lying around out the wazoo this time of year (Or so I thought, I could only find two). It was also pretty easy to smash them open and heat up the rinds (hulls?) in a pot of water. This is what the wool looked like beforehand:
Here’s what it looked like while it was soaking
Here’s what it looked like in the end
It’s so pretty, I was a little nervous; I was not sure how it would turn out. It’s like spinning straw into gold or something like that…
As I’m sure you all have noticed spinayarnknit looks a different. I’m in the process of giving her a facelift; ignore the stock photo in the header. Also, if any random half-baked posts missing photos show up that’s because I’ve been working off of my new iPod more and more, and I have not quite got the drafts part down.
