As the wind rises and the summer sunlight begins to fade my fingers are enjoying the rustic textures of Hebridean wool and minimally-processed Shetland wool pressed against deer antler bone and ram horn toggles and buttons. “The tactile delight of rough, rustic wool and smooth bone.” The flowing shapes of found deer antler tips, always individual, are beautiful fastenings for little hand knitted, woollen waist pouches. I love these pouches for foraging. And little round, hand-cut antler buttons work harmoniously with a Hebridean aran wool bodice. Next I’ll be playing with found Scottish Blackface ram horns, sawing it slices and drilling button holes. Think I’ll use those on a cardi I’ve knitted in a Harris tweed wool I hand-plied on my drop-spindle.
