A Priest Crafts: Episode 2 – Striped Top Study

Hello friends! Episode 2 of my new blog is ready for your viewing pleasure. This month I play with a new-to-me preparation. I did something a little different with this video: make a plan and show you the process from idea to singles to finished yarn.

If I find anything more about the top, where it came from or what it’s called, I’ll add it here.

I ended up with ten mini skeins, all of the same wpi, but using different drafting techniques to get the singles, and plying them together differently to get subtle variations in how the colors mixed. The next step will be take the yarn all the way to finished product, where I can get really down in the weeds with what the colors are doing with each variable. (It’ll be in a blog post, in case you want to skim!)

I’d like to commit to six months with these videos. Probably posted early in the month. I’m not sure where this medium is going for me, so I’ll play around with some different styles. After September I’ll evaluate.

Please leave your thoughts and corrections and ideas; they are deeply appreciated! Thanks for watching.
