The SprangLady Subscription-2021- Exploring structures
Welcome to the SprangLady Subscribers Information Site.
I look forward to sharing information with you, and accompanying you in your explorations of sprang. I will be available for a monthy sprang chat via Zoom, on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. There you can ask me questions, and receive on-line support. You will also be able to meet others interested in sprang.
You will find a number of documents here. I consider these the foundational instruction sheets that follow after you've mastered the basic interlinking stitch.
The exploration this year will be "advanced sampling".
The idea is to take you through the exercise of making samples. We will then use those samples to calculate number of stitches and length of warp required for a neckscarf. If a neckscarf isnot your thing, then you could use these samples to make a hat or pair of fingerless mittens .... sprang has lots of options.
For 2021, each month we will sample a different sprang stitch, and evaluate it in order to make a neckscarf (or hat or pair of fingerless mittens).
The current list of stitches (which may well shift) reads as follows:
January: interlacing, over one, under one
February: interlacing, over two, under two, horizontal ribs
March: basic interlinking
April: Over 3 interlinking
May: Ropes aka Full Twists
June: Transpositions - Twists
July: Doubles Grid
August: 2-2 Interlacing, Vertical ribs
September: Interrupted Twill
October: Patterns in S&Z
For those of you who missed signing up in January ... this is not a problem. Even if you sign up, in, say, June, you will begin with access to all the previous information, January through June's structures ... but you will have missed out on 5 months of Zoom meetings.
There will also be a monthly Zoom chat, arranged at different times of the day on a rotating cycle, to accommodate members in diverse time zones.
