Notes

(first photo courtesy of Lauraspinner, and yarn is Nerds on Falkland spun by Laura)

Warp was two different two ply handspun yarns, approx light worsted/dk weight. Weft was heavy worsted two ply falkland handspun yarn in my colorway, Nerds.

Lauraspinner is a treasured friend, and she is very fond of Nerds! So, I spun the yarn and wove the cloth, then had my other very treasured friend, Alice/pincushionpatch, sew up one of her custom Li’l Lizzy totes- perfect for small knitting or dropspindle projects! There was enough left that Alice made a matching eyeglass case. Happy Birthday, Laura :)

Spin your own Nerds! Bottom picture is my Nerds colorway on Falkland combed top, but it is available on many more fiber bases, too.

You can also buy ready made totes, as well as request a custom made one, at Alice’s Etsy shop.
