I've been knitting away on my latest pair of socks, one is finished and the other is off to a good start. Last night I managed to get the picot top knit down with a few swears and raced around for a few rows...gotta love that mindless stockinette knitting. The yarn is Austermann Step which I love, it's treated with aloe and is so easy on your hands and feet.
Of the many blogs I troll through in a week's time I enjoy reading AmpuTeeHee. Today when I stopped by to see what she was up to I found this very interesting video...
Traditional way of processing wool in Serbia.
It's not in English but doesn't really need to be imo. I wonder how long our clothes would last if we beat them on rocks with paddles like that. I thought it interesting that the woman spinning the flax was actually spitting on it at regular intervals. I know that flax wheels usually come with a little bowl attached for water so you can wet the flax while spinning it into linen thread.
It's been pretty quiet around here this week. Daughter Rena celebrated her 4th anniversary yesterday, Hey Rena!! Love you...and The Chef too!
I'm thinking about asking The Saint to take me to a nearby Indian restaurant for my birthday. I can't think of a thing I need (except a new phone, ha!) so will be happy with a nice dinner and not having to do dishes for the evening.
Hop on over to Andrea's blog for a great tour of the fibery things you can learn about at Greenfield Village. You'll also find some other crafty peeps on the Fiber Arts Friday listing at the bottom of her Friday posts. I always find interesting things there and I'll bet you will too.
