it only took a few short weeks,
to learn that nettle is no good for dish rags
hole after hole after hole.
i've wound the hemp (again, by hand),
and hope that it will fare better.
~ small metal tools
~ my sewing box
linen dresses . . .
(made by me)
a flowering tree from last month
one scrub cloth complete . . .
in simple garter stitch to go with this unruly yarn.
small ceramic spoon i made last spring
projects are slow-going . . .
center-pull yarn "cake"
wound with a fat knitting needle and my hands
the process is very satisfying.
nettle & hemp
hanks of organic, wild-grown, handspun nettle and hemp —
to be made into dish scrub cloths.
an easy project to have on the needles while sewing my jacket.
