Day 6 – Artifact Hat & Shares

Use the wings of the flying Universe,
Dream with open eyes;
See in darkness.
~ Dejan Stojanovic

Artifact Hat in my quest to make as many of Erica Heusser designs as I can.

Two fiber-related shares today that I think are amazing. First is by a fellow vegan knitter who works on so many aspects of fiber arts, my mind is blown. This demonstration of a spinning wheel used in India during colonial rule is just astounding to me. I never knew these existed.

Another share for holiday gifting is of a factory that makes something for people near to my heart. Those facing childhood cancer. I find it fascinating to watch how mills work. I wish I could produce handmade hats for them, but I know they need certain uniformity and materials to offer as many as they do and turn a profit.
