There's been lots of felting goodness and dyeing happening in my studio during the early mornings this week, thanks to the rejuvenation I got from last weekend's retreat! I posted recently with photos of a lattice scarf I made for myself. As excited as I was then, I've changed my method a bit (to make the openings smaller), and have had good success in doing some with pure alpaca (hand-dyed, from our herd). I like these a lot better than the first.
Here's one with a flower pin that I'm including for the buyer, my friend Charlotte.
I'm going to try to do a bit more "direct selling" (I'd love to cut out the middle man wherever possible to keep prices reasonable), so if you're interested in any of these let me know and I'll be glad to send more pictures/details. The scarves are $65-$80 and the pink/orange shawl is $105 and I'll include the pin if you respond within the week!
Oh, and here's a skein of yarn I spun on the retreat- I just love doing those coils! You can tell from the color palette that I'm craving some spring color.
Pin It Now!
You may notice that I've updated my blog roll to better reflect what I've been reading these days. Lots of new felting blogs are listed! I'm excited that Nicola Brown (Clasheen) from Ireland is coming to Kentucky in late May and will be giving a class at my friend Jan's home. I'm very excited that she's coming to the area, and hope she'll have time to come to the farm! Check out her site if you're interested in the class.
