These are the two Circa 2016 blocks for this week.
I recently spun some flax to make linen tassels for a little project. It was the first time I have ever spun pure flax and it turned out to be much easier than I had anticipated. I came out quite fine - about light fingering to lace weight.
Since I had a bit of linen left over, I thought it would be interesting to see how it would knit up. Rather than just making a swatch I knitted a doily (about 12"). It really softened up as I knit (I did 'beat' and boil the finished yarn to help soften it before too) and was lovely to work with. I am looking forward to spinning more flax for a bigger project.
Here is the finished project along with more flax ready for spinning. This flax top is from Louet.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!♥
