SPIN-A-LONG and KNIT-A-LONG; JOIN US!

In Scrapboxes, Spin Insby Natalie


Scrapbox or combed top



Namaste Farms/Redding Method will have a SAL and KAL starting February 13th, 2019. DON’T panic if you see this late, you can join in any time. Friends and followers have asked for this 5 week spinning and knitting extravaganza so that people who don’t knit, can learn! We expanded this to include spinning yarn and dyeing a simple solid single too. All the instruction is FREE and will take place on our Facebook group, Redding Method.  If you knit but don’t spin, I’ll teach you to make yarn on a chopstick.  If you crochet but don’t knit, I’ll teach you to knit.  If you spin but don’t dye, I’ll teach you to dye.  All you have to do is join and show up to Redding Method and get the relevant information such as links etc…

The ultimate goal of this project, besides inviting people to learn and become more skilled in fiber arts, is to have a finished project. The project we’re doing is a simple hat.  There will be at least 5 free patterns to choose from and those will be listed in Redding Method in the files section.

If you want to make yarn for your hat from the Kitchen Sink Scrapbox (for art yarn) or from fun combed top (merino and Mulberry silk), you can use the paypal button below.  If you want to simply use commercial yarn and dye it yourself (after the tutorial), you can purchase one of the yarns below or use your own yarn.  I do suggest that people making art yarn mix their art yarn with a commercial yarn to make your hat less bulky.  Depending on how bulky your art yarn is, you’ll want to choose your yarn in a similar weight.  I usually use bulky, but you can use DK or a lighter weight and double it!  Please note, there is a limited supply of the yarns listed below. If the paypal button shows “out” you can use the other paypal pulldown and pre-order yarn and I’ll order more.
