Empty cones and scraps of organic cotton greet me as I set up my swift to wind a 9 ounce skein of linen yarn from habu. I stretch the huge skein around the swift and begin to turn. Weighed down by the yardage, the swift turns slowly, transforming the skein from one nest to another.
I love assemblage’s paper crane garment, so I was thrilled when she released the knit version of the her design. I especially love the way the neckline is shaped organically by the roll of the fabric. Linen is a perfect fiber to work with at the moment, casting on during the heart of spring.
