Fall Felting

Posted on October 29, 2009 at 3:00pm 6 Comments

The weather is turning colder, and it's a great time to be thinking about warm slippers, hot cider, and snuggling by the fire under a cozy afghan. I'm busy with several felting projects at the moment, and fall is such a nice time to work on things like that. I've got 4 pairs of slippers in process (serially, not concurrently) - one pair in the Laced Slippers Pattern, and I'm working on the…


39 Felted Snow People - complete

Posted on October 12, 2009 at 12:00pm 10 Comments

I started Christmas early this year - last April or May. And I'm now done. Whew! I made 13 sets of the Felted Snowmen pattern (39 total snowmen). It was a wonderful project to work on over the summer. Very portable, small, and no heavy warm wool resting on me in the heat. Two of my Lumpies got special Christmas hats and scarves due to a Knit Picks Christmas Hat project (upcoming).

It's great to be done with my Christmas knitting in early October - that leaves me time to make some… Continue

Knit Picks Warehouse Adventures

Posted on August 31, 2009 at 10:00am 7 Comments

And I got some duller green yarn to make my DH some socks (he has some trousers that… Continue

I think the JD is totally appropriate. Sounds like you do have a fun job! We did get hit by the snow and cold recently. Last Wed. it was -14 on my drive to work (fortunately only at 10-15 minute drive). Hope you have a wonderful holiday season as well. I plan to enjoy family and, after the rush this week and next, relax a knit some. Jeanne

You asked me a few weeks about my felted hearts. The pattern is free on the Mochi Mochi blog. I think it was Kate that mentioned in one of the podcast about how she likes to follow that site. They are fast and easy to make and then just need a little needle felting to make each one special.
