Tirar a Ferrugem – Taking it for a Spin

September 5, 2016

Para mim, os fusos são como os carros. Mesmo que estejam bem guardados numa garagem, é preciso levá-los a dar uma voltinha de vez em quando. Este fuso da minha avó esteve parado durante demasiados anos. Agora, embora esteja demasiado frágil para utilizar diariamente, fia uma meada por ano, para ‘tirar a ferrugem’ . Desta vez é uma meada de Churra Bragançana, trabalhada com pentes, sobre a qual hei de escrever em breve.

Spindles are a bit like cars for me. Even if you have them tucked away carefully in a garage, you need to take them out for a drive around the block, once in a while. My grandmother’s spindle was in a garage for too many years. Now, even though it is too fragile to use daily, I spin a skein with it every year. This time I’m using a combed top of Churra Bragançana wool, of which I will say more in a upcoming post.
