Handspun Yarn Eye-Candy
Let’s indulge ourselves with the prettiest and softest handspun yarn eye-candy whilst we take a closer look at our calculated making process.. Because yarn crafters are extensive users of math – we experiment wildly with quantity, structure and space. Moreover, our work is very much empirically driven, bottom up, trial and error.
That is, only we finish our art we have proof (or the absence of proof!) of our original thesis. As true practitioners, crafters know all too well that making predictions about the likely outcome of an artistic journey is virtually impossible (at best you’ll be way off the mark), whether you stay on pattern or not.
You can only protect against total ruin (of your project), by making sure you work with quality handspun yarn (our own hand dyed creations, naturally) and highly reliable tools. So we used Clover’s bamboo needles. That’s it really.
Read all about this handspun yarn eye-candy that we are so fond of in KOEL Magazine Issue 8.
