A weight has been lifted from the blog! It took me long enough but writing last week was the push I needed to complete the task of finding a new theme for The Knit Knack.
This post does not include any affiliate links. As of the time of writing, TKK is not monetized. If this changes at all down the line, I plan to be upfront about that. I receive no commission if you find your way to a business navigating from here, and in any case am not linking to them.
The theme that I chose, and customized is ‘Rosalie.’ It is more streamlined, and is labeled “accessibility ready.” We have changed from free to a commercial theme for the site. Working to improve accessibility issues is the silver lining of changes related to the Ravelry update last year.
The 12 oz of Spirit Trail Fiber Works & 3.5 oz of Sweet Georgia are both 85/ 15 Polwarth/ Silk spun in double drive tension on my Watson Martha spinning wheel. The total is around 1,105 yards.
Since 2 of the Martha bobbins had another spin-in-progress, I finally brought my Spinolution Mach 2 up from the basement & tried a thing. It worked! You can use cotton seine twine on these wheels. The drive wheel has not chattered or swayed as it did before, and held the drive band.
In working out of the box this week, I have decided to aim for 2 posts a month using my Tuesday afternoon as a hopeful time-slot. The posts will need to be shorter than typical. I am looking forward to sharing again.
Let me know what you think about the new look!
