And relatively recent too.*
And then I wonder where to find the supplies. And the needles (because the short plastic ones just don’t cut it.)
They had these cool “bumps” of big wool – intended for weaving. I wondered about them in 2011. In 2012, someone bought them before I could.
I took care of that over the summer (when it was 120 degrees out and I wanted to knit a giant rug out of super-bulky wool.) (I didn’t say it was sane.)
Then I checked out how to make needles on-line. **
And now I have this:
I can’t imagine it is very durable – the yarn is so loosly spun, it does pill. It is very cushy. I was hoping for a bedside rug – something to step onto when waking up in the dead of winter when the house is cold. Ned seems to consider it his bed. (We’ll talk.)
*As opposed to the ginormous back log …
**The giant needles work and are kind of cool, but I’ve decided that making a knitting loom would just be easier to work with.
