The good thing about being sick is that I have more time at home to sleep and craft. So when I was hit by a summertime cold I managed to churn out this:
The story here is that the roving arrived partly felted. I thought the colors were pretty enough to push on through it…otherwise I would have chucked in into the needle felting basket. So after an hour of tugging and pulling and grunting I managed to give myself a migraine pre-drafting it.
What you don’t see in these pics is that there are long lengths in the middle that matched color for color when I plied it. So instead of varigated/tweediness I have big hunks of all violet and all peach. I can’t imagine what it’ll look like knit up. I have a feeling this will sit on my shelf for a bit before I figure out what to do with it. In the meantime, it does a good job of looking purty on the bobbin.
