Yarning along today with Ginny from Small Things... Sycamore Shoals State Park, and there I picked up a couple of excellent books on country cooking and customs. I also purchased a lucet, and it's been great fun for both me and T to learn how to use it. The lucet is a tool that's been in use since Viking times to make braids and cords. It was especially popular in the Victorian Age. I'm thinking of using some self-patterning sock yarn with it to make cords for S to play with. I imagine these will become snakes or repelling ropes or both.
