|Larger hula hoop with warp.|
(Pic on right.) If I want to use the smaller hula hoop, I'll just need to cut up a smaller tee shirt. I used a man's size XL -- too big for the 28 inch hoop but great for this 34 inch one.
Then, following Anne Weil's instruction on her site, Flax & Twine here, I was able to get my ball of finger-knitting started. Since I've only been working on this project when I take a break from prepping for my next recording, I haven't gotten very far but it does go pretty fast. I'm at the point now where I need to follow Anne's instructions for weaving through both sides of the tee shirt strips (warp) after having done the first 7-9 inches around the entire strip. Here's what my future wall hanging of left-over yarn that I finger-knitted looks like right now. It's approx. 8 inches wide at this point.
