Hand Felted Gloves

Yesterday I, and a handful of others, had the great fortune to be taught how to felt gloves by Cathy Unwin. In what I can only describe as a long but rewarding process we all started with giant hand templates, painstakingly tender laying out, and even gentler felting where they slowly but surely felted and shrank to fit our hands. 

They took so long to make, and I cannot wait until they are fully dry and I can wear them properly to show them off!

Massam & Merino Test

Just trying to see if Merino pre felt will work on Massam fibres. I really like the integration I've got here. Might try it on a teacosy...

I'm just gathering myself. Harvest Moon came and went last night, feels like a time to gather.

Been stitching slowly. I invisibly basted this one today. Then started adding black rays to this Black Hole Sun, slow going, but thats ok.

I have a nasty cold, germs, yuk; time for some rest. I will be back soon.
