Knitting and Felting

I have been busy lately and not all of the work has been knitting.  Diane and I took a class from Jennif Chandler on Feather Light felted scarfs at SAFFand put what we learned in class to work.  Here are 3 scarfs that I made last weekend.  The technique is not hard but takes a little elbow grease.

 I also did a little stash enhancement at SAFF which I haven't showed you.  First up is a pile from Miss Babs who we had the pleasure to talk with when she wasn't busy.

I also started a scarf from Brooks Farm Duet yarn which is 50/50 kid mohair and fine wool.  I can see now what all of the hype is about Brooks Farm.  I might have also bought enough yarn for a sweater too but more on that later.

Busy day ahead so later!

I have a friend here who makes felted scarfs too. They are really neat looking. You picked up some beautiful yarn and fiber!

Those scarves look so warm. Yum! (You know where I live. It's warm now, but it's not going to last!!)

I haven't had the pleasure of working with Brooks Farm yet, but you are really tempting me. That blue scarf is such a pretty color.
