I’ve been working on some tutorial videos for the Follow Your Arrow KAL and found some fun footage I don’t think I’ve ever shared publicly, including this little field trip we took last spring to the New Lanark Mill.What could be better than a museum that makes and sells yarn? (This was originally shot for the Perfect Sweater online class I did last March so if you took that you may have already seen it). I also wrote about my visit to one of the only other operational spinning mules, Bartlettyarns, in The Rhinebeck Sweater.
Keep an eye out for more technique and tip videos in the near future – I have several in the editing queue. If you’re working on the Follow Your Arrow pattern you may find the following videos helpful for clue 1, but be warned that they’re a bit spoilery. If you haven’t jumped in yet you could still complete clue 1 before clue 2 is released on Monday, if you put your mind (and needles!) to it. All the info on the knitalongis here, and there’s a dedicated Ravelry group.
Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
