The exams are done, the house is clean and I've done something I've been wanting to do - no not that - I've done that already!!!
No, what I wanted to do was try felting! So I did! After my last exam on Thursday last week, I went to the art store, and Ikea and the wool shop. I had a blast poking around and looking at all the fun ways I can play!
I picked up a blue wool and used the roving I already had and played with it. Here are the pictures of my endeavors. If I ever
Some of the pictures are double - sorry about that.
It all shows how I knitted the piece, washed it and felted it, then cut out a star - which was supposed be more flower looking. Then I got the needles out and started poking away.
Interesting thing about the needles. I could have bought a gadget that the a different type of needle sits in. I think there are six needles in the holder. This gadget was about 25.00. Instead I picked up these needles that were four 7bucks. You can use more than one at a time or just use the one for specific work - more details. I like the idea of the needles - cheaper and easy to use.
I only poked my finger once and man they are sharp!
So I'm working on a few other things which I'll show you real soon! And I teach beading in the next few weeks if the class goes!
Oh! And I planted Pansies!!!!!!
Rhinebeck or Bust!
