Grandma's handkerchiefs find a new use
I sewed the handkerchiefs together using a very basic zig zag. I had a few tension issues at first but got it together and the sewing went very quickly. My machine is used to slogging through recycled wool sweaters and cashmere. This stuff was far too delicate!
In the meantime, my next project is looming. Literally. I have a theory that I can weave long strips of cashmere and make some fabulous scarves for next winter. I found a great tutorial here: http://www.hallnet.com/Weave.html
and have already bought and marked the wood for cutting. I'm going to try it out first on some old t-shirts rather than risk cutting up the cashmere without a plan. Can't wait.
What wintery projects are you hatching this spring?
