The I-Cord rediscovered is a great piece of knitting. I was in need of a cord for the hood of my jacket, somehow it had dissappeared with the washings. I decided I will make it out of omega nylon thread and here it is.
Last Saturday I was lucky and able to take a trip to A Verb For Keeping Warm , in Berkeley , where I was able to attend a Class with WonderMike from Fiber Beat. The Class was on Navajo Plying while making yarn on a drop spindle, which was a very easy task and you can do it on the go, once you are done you are done. I will have to say that it will not be possible to do this task the same way on a wheel, it would not be possible without a lot of maneuvering if at all possible. Navajo Plying gives you a nice three ply yarn that is is very strong, after all it has been done for many , many years. I believe that if it is done properly , you will have a well balanced yarn that will respond with strength and beauty. A three ply yarn s very rounded and has a beauty of its own. Thanks for stopping by.
