And now back to work. We are going to a small show on Saturday, March 1, at the Simcoe County Museum (www.county.simcoe.on.ca/cultureinformation/museum/index.html) called Heritage Crafters Sampler Day where they are featuring several different hand crafts with a display of work, a small market with vendors, and a list of classes that the museum will be holding in April. This is part of their education mandate and it will be fun. They want to introduce more people to hand crafting which is wonderful.
Our Guild was introduced to something completely different at our meeting last night - Cat Bhordi's Moebius cast on. Not an easy thing to get on to but Terry did a great job of keeping us at it and we all got a cast on round and several rounds knit. It is an amazing thing and next month we should see some Moebius scarves finished.
Here's my Moebius beginning. Can you see where the fabric crosses on the second photo? And can you see that the circular needle is winding around twice? At the crossing the needle is moving from the inner circle to the outer circle. You cast on in the centre and knit away from the centre at both edges at the same time. Pretty amazing. I am knitting 3 rounds, then wrapping and turning to the inside and knitting 3 more rounds. That way I get the ridges that are showing. It's fun to try out and most of my fellow guild members picked more exciting wool than I did so I hope I can photograph them next month.
