show off, adding stuff to the list, lol! you sound like me. i actually sent banana fiber yarn to an almost vegan secret pal a while back, and she adored it. said it acted very much like silk.

Melissa said...

Wow, you have done so much. I'll have to add this list when I post to my blog tomorrow.

Really though, I'm coming to comment on your post above this. I would love to see the photo essay of how to weave on the nail loom but, that post won't let me comment.

Looking forward to it.


Marlene said...

Thanks for the heads up Melissa. Somehow the options to comment or link to that post got shut down. It should be fixed now though. I hope this isn't going to be a regular problem with Blogger.

It's funny that you say you don't live in the right climate for thrummed knitting... most Americans consider anywhere north of the 49th to be perfect for exactly just that! :)

Where I spent much of my childhood and the early years of my marriage (central BC) it WAS cold enough for many months of the year to be wearing thrumbed mittens Nicole, but British Columbia has several different climates depending on where in the province that you live. Part of the province seems almost like a desert --- very dry and hot during the summer months. I now live in "the lower mainland" of BC and it's a coastal climate here. We get a lot of rain in the winter but the temperatures don't usually drop low enough for snow --- unless you go into the mountains. I don't even own a winter jacket anymore. I wear a rain resistant jacket from Fall through to Spring, and add a fleece vest when it is "cold".
