This summer I challenged myself to make a quick handspun project that I could make while traveling, something portable, something useful.
I made a Summer Sachet. It needs two Schacht Zoom Loom squares, a bit of yarn for embroidering and sewing and a little dried lavender.
Zoom Loom squares only need 8 yards of yarn, quick to spin on a spindle. The stitching yarn uses even less yardage.
I used a braid of Lisa Souza’s gorgeous (and so soft) Superfine Merino in her South Pacific colorway. I spun and wove it as it came into a almost-worsted weight 2-ply for the square. For the embroidery, I broke out purple and green and spun them separately to stitch the lavender.
The directions for the Summer Sachet are on the Schacht Blog.
What did you make this summer?
