Today's Project

I started creating this dreads scarf a few days ago. My thought in laying out the wool for this one is to create a more random weave rather than the grid. The dreads will hang from all 4 sides. Over the next couple of days I will wet it and begin the felting process. Because of its size it will take a couple of days to roll.

Happy New Year to All

What a fun year it was in 2009 and I look forward to new challenges in 2010. I made a vest for myself last year that I am especially delighted to wear. It is pictured here. One side is black merino wool and the other is white and where they come together in the back you can see there is a design. The white half has circle cut-outs so that the black shows through. It has a nice drape and length so as to wear with jeans and boots.
