Knit & felt

Do you remember this? The beautiful vegetable yarn I got as a gift from a friend? Well today I finally got started on a project using it. Well saying today is a bit of a fib because I knitted the shawl last week but I started on the creative process today. I placed wool roving on the knitted shawl in a flower pattern, added hot soap water and gently tapped the wool in place.

Rolled it into a roll and then it went for a spin in the spin drier. This is what it looked like when it got out….it is still wet.

Now I plan to add some embroidery and maybe a crocheted lace in a different color as a border. Have to wait until it’s dry though which is a trying experience for me. I want to get on with it at once. Sigh!

Take care
