Ana came to my house after work yesterday to help me figure out nålbinding. I might have jury duty in a couple of months (I'm hoping to get out of it as the summons was addressed to Violet D. Blood, who no longer exists, but they might insist), and knitting needles and crochet hooks are banned. Nålbinding uses a short, very dull needle, so seems like it should be allowed. I've tried for years to figure it out, though, and have never managed. We looked at many websites, and the brochure I bought five years ago, but we failed. We liked this video, though, and thought the young man was most charming.
We had a good dinner, at least. There was salad of roasted beet with onions and nectarines cooked on my stripey pan,
soba with microgreens (I couldn't find radish sprouts anywhere) and wakame;
and stripey-pan-cooked tofu and pickles.
Maybe if I really devote myself to it, after I finish the hat I'm knitting, I'll figure out how to nålbind--I have till 22 September.
