I finished my triangle scarf this week.
The wool side
The silk side
There wasn’t that much shrinkage as it is very cobwebby on the wool side.
I finished the prefelt for the building on a Picture I am working on.
I cut some circles to make little earbud pouches. Sorry I can’t right now remember who had this great idea to use scrap piece for felt for this. I want to keep my square credit card reader in one.
I made 2 pieces specially to cut up.
I love the way the silk throwsters waist seems to hover on the felt even though it is well attached. The blue one isn’t firm enough so I will rewet it and full it some more.
I also started 2 more. I laid the wool out first. The first one I used on large piece of silk on top . I added the roving so you could see the colour. I wanted something a little more “masculine”.
The other one I want more texture from the silk so I had to wet the back ground so the silk would stay where and how I put it. I then added some synthetic yarn and put tiny amounts of wool to bridge it and hold it down. I really like how it looks so I think I will make a scarf in the same design. It is very dark in the picture because it is wet.
So that’s been my week in felt. I hope you have been able to play with some fibers too. Don’t forget to enter the draw for a free hat class.
