Applied Yarn







The witchcraft has begun. This ability to transmute fluff into wearable, necessary, life saving clothes has begun to trickle through the spinning-to-needle process and we have a result. We have … a hat.



People, I feel like a boss. I have found how to turn mud into gold. In primitive societies I would be a priestess now… along with the guy who learned how to make fire by rubbing two sticks together. Stories should be written about me and I should go down in folklore like Rumpelstiltskin… because, dude, I can turn fluff into solid cloth. Hear. Me. Roar.

Yes, I am rather happy about this amazing transformation of myself from a consumer to producer of yarn.

Now all I have to do is practice until the yarn is a consistent thickness, learn how to dye, buy some sheep, buy the farm to put the sheep in, learn how to be a sheep farmer, learn how to shear and card and …. I can knit more hats.

  1. This is fantastic! I’ve been having a good read throughout your blog and I’m fascinated by this amazing spinning and the beautiful knitting you do. I’m a crocheter – I keep meaning to learn to knit because it seems so much more versatile. Had a laugh about your comment re ‘might as well move to Australia’… it does feel like the ends of the earth here 😉 Anyway, lovely to discover your blog. Kx


  2. No I didn’t mean because australia is the ends of the earth. I meant because its winter there now and the fast will be at least ten hours shorter! Glad you found me too. Yes, learn to knit, you’ll be glad you did 😉 xx
