I was the only one unable to get on my site -- something with the IP address. Go figure!
So I tried my hand at needle felting. I have A TON of medium grade wool -- a Romney cross -- that isn't exactly you luxury type spinning wool, and Romney isn't the best for wet felting. It is OK for my general use, but I think when folks want to buy hand painted wool, they want the soft sumptuous stuff. I use this wool in some of my blends, but I don't like it to dominate, just add some texture. So what to do with the many many many pounds? Well, now I know I can dye it up and make some needle felting packs. It worked great! Here is my first critter...
Rachel has already confiscated the little bun bun. i had initially thought to try to needle felt some of Lilah's fur onto the surface, but opted against it -- I like how this looks.
I have officially put MS3 to bed -- not going to push myself on it. I just wasn't feeling it, as beautiful as the pattern may be. I did pic Poppy back up, tho, and am determined to finish a few more WIPS (at LEAST a sock and Rachel's mittens) b4 I cast on the Hemp skirt. It is tough tho! It is calling me!
