My partner Chris is a composer and musician, so for today’s post I asked for his help in making a track involving the sounds from my wool-winder and some knitting needles.  The idea was to film it all in one take, but that would have made a 24 minute movie, so instead we’ve clipped it into this cheesy video so you can see the process involved.  Turn this up (or use headphones) as the winder is a bit quiet at the beginning.

    What a beautiful idea, and result. It is very meditative. Well done!

      Thanks! It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a while, after Chris said he wanted to sample the wool winder. He was interested in the sewing machine too, so maybe there’s more to come! :)

    Brilliant…it’s a nice ‘busy’ tune, progressing along with that steady but gentle rhythm rolling along in the background just like the steady, gentle rhythm of knitting or crochet. The melodic parts are not intrusive but calming just like our craft. A perfect accompaniment. Well done!

      Thank you! I thought exactly the same thing! I’d like to return to this and maybe spend some more time on it next time, we’ll see where it goes!
