today at my house
there is coffee filter yarn.
The sun is shining.
And the narcissus--
are casting shadows on the wall.

I love the look of the knitting. What will is be?
12/11/2019 07:22:43 pm
I have no idea! So far, an experiment in texture and knit-ability.

Love spinning paper. How do you connect the end of one piece of spun paper to the next piece to be spun?
12/11/2019 07:23:39 pm
I tie them together in a square knot.

Just a big purple cabbage from our garden.

I would probably fold ends of coffee paper yarn over each other (like c's) the way I do with cotton or any yarn that can't be spit-spliced to join together. You'd have a thicker spot at joins, but I think they'd blend in when it's done.

For Cindy and Sarah because the form isn't working for me: Traditionally in spinning kami-ito you overlap the two ends of paper, with maybe just the hint of mom's spit, and carefully let the spin run up and envelop the splice, sorta like other fiberarts.
