Last weekend we went on a ramble to Harrisville, NH. It used to be a mill town where they spun yarn and wove fabric. Here is one of the old mills.
There are lots of mill ponds so that the water could flow through all the different mills to power the looms.
Here is the passage which allows the water to go underneath the mills to make the waterwheel work.
Tasha Tudor based her book, Corgiville Fair, on this town.
Helen got felting wool and I got a ball of yarn at the weaving store. I used a spool knitter to make a long cord.
