Beautiful Knitting

Where Mt.Mom knits, crochets, designs, and seeks Beauty as food for the soul.

Videos: Piping and Weaving

Posted by mtmom on July 24, 2009

I spent most of yesterday wrestling with iMovie, YouTube, Facebook, and CyberDuck.  Here’s some of the fruit of that labor:  a short (31 seconds) video clip from Sunday’s Celtic Festival in which Robert Watt pipes while wearing his new kilt hose.  (He gave me permission to post this.  Thanks to Nanette Blanchard for requesting it.)

Follow this link to another interesting video I found from Knitting Daily TV:  Liz Gipson weaves on a rigid heddle loom (followed on that blog page by another video on weaving with knitting yarns.)  http://www.knittingdaily.com/blogs/daily/archive/2009/07/20/why-weave.aspx#v1

    Dear cousin, If you will check the family tree, you will find you are superbly qualified for anything Scottish. Your socks are wonderful.

    Cool video, the socks look good and they are staying up! Would alpaca work? It is warmer than wool, but I don’t know how they would work for kilt socks.

    I thought about using alpaca today — it can be so soft — but I don’t think it would be a good choice. A pair I bought once was cozy, but grew and sagged. Too drapey. The flashes might be able to compensate, but I think I’ll stick with wool for now.
