Well it seems a while since I had a felting update, as it’s been months since I have done any.
A few years ago I made a hat that I never wore outside and I decided to adjust the brim to one I was more comfortable wearing.
I received some ‘silk condenser waste’ from a lady at the Guild and I wanted to test how it looked when felted so I made a tiny felted vessel with it on.
I made a clock for my craft room that I like so much it’s now in the living room!
I also felted two lampshades but haven’t constructed them yet.
After casting off one arm with half the yarn I had left I felt it was too short and I haven’t finished the body or the trim, so I ordered 2 more 50g skeins to finish it. Oh and to get free postage I thought I’d order some other yarn…I mean that’s the law isn’t it? Hehe!
What I bought was 12 skeins of the exact same yarn in a dark red colour, to knit another Fine Sand cardigan. It had a good discount on it so I couldn’t resist!
Anyway the yarn hasn’t arrived yet and I can’t do more until it arrives, so I have cast on a pair of gloves for my husband. More on those next week.
I just plied some more of the BFL and Seacell which has already been shown a lot. There’s spinning group on Tuesday and I’m not the zoom controller for that so hoping to get a good 2 hrs of spinning done.
My yarn arrived from Wensleydale Longwool shop and they had accidentally sent me a skein of DK and Aran instead of 2 Aran skeins. They are sending me the correct one and said I can keep the DK one so that was great. I’m hoping it will be here early next week so I can progress with the weaving project I warped a week ago.
I took our dog to the beach on Friday. She wasn’t as excited as I was to be back on the beach after so many months staying within 5 miles. She seems to be aging pretty quickly now and I’m amazed she doesn’t rattle with all the tablets and supplements she is on. It’s her 13th birthday on Thursday which, for her weight of dog, makes her 82 in human years apparently.
I potted on some seedlings and planted some seeds in my raised borders. We are still getting some frost at night but today was scorching in the greenhouse.
I’ve started listening to The Midnight Library and finally seem to have found a book I’m not zoning out whilst listening to. It’s got me gripped already and such an interesting idea for a story.
This is a Year of Projects post. Officially the Group is in its 10th year, but this is my 3rd year participating. If you would like to find more about the Year of Projects Group on Ravelry.
