Hope you all had a great Christmas! I got kinda busy and haven't posted for a while.
Recently, when talking about my scarves, I mentioned that I use a "fringe twister" to make the fringe on the ends. A reader asked "What is a "fringe twister?".
So here is a picture of the wondrous little tool in action.
Basically, you take a group of threads (I usually do about 8-10) and split it in half. Clip each half to one of the alligator clips and twist until it kinks. Take the clips off and tie the two groups together using an overhand knot. When you let go, they untwist some and in the process they twist themselves together in the opposite direction. It is really simple, but genius.
And here is a link to Village Spinning & Weaving's online shop where you could purchase one of your own.
