A visit to New Lanark + Follow Your Arrow tips

January 18, 2014

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.
