Still working on those sprang patterns. I sent out drafts to friends and former students. They’ve given me some great feedback. Presently I’m updating the patterns, making them easier to use, and hope to start posting them soon.
Made another pair of sprang gloves, this time with a thumb.
Yes, you can make sprang gloves with fingers. The deal is that you create the cloth with an eye to the size and shape of the intended garment. Have a look at a pair of gloves made out of leather or cloth. There are little strips of cloth between the fingers. That’s what I think will be the easiest way to make sprang gloves. I made a short thin piece to go along the webbing of my hand between index and thumb.
Getting ready for a series of teaching engagements.
I’ll be at the London Knit and Stitch show on Thursday, Oct 9, showing the world how to finger weave. In honour of this event, I’ve set up a warp for a neck scarf.
I’ve completed another pair of sprang leggings, this one inspired by another portrait in Dagmar Drinkler’s research. I’ll bring them to the ETSG conference on October 10-11.

Carol acknowledges that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. Carol also acknowledges that sprang is part of many indigenous traditions and found in various forms all over the world. Let us re-discover this technique together.
