Home Work

Here’s what we’ve been doing while staying at home. Images here are submitted by Maine Fiberarts’ staff and our readers. What have you been doing? Email us (carol@mainefiberarts.org) a photo or two with a tiny caption and we will post it here with everyone’s (stay at) home work.

Vivian sent in photos of her “Thrummed Cap” and a pair of “City of London Mittens.” Sailors wore thrummed caps at sea in the 17 century to wick away the moisture from their heads. The cap is reversible. The mittens are great for Maine so I knit them for myself. All knit with 100% wool. Vivian also knits "garb" in the 17 Century style for the interpreters at the Plymouth Plantation Museum in Massachusetts.
