Warming Up To Felt
Once a month I attend a felt study group. Last week we had 10 women pulling out wool fiber and laying it down to make wrist warmers. Mine turned out to be more like glamorous gauntlets. I really do like them and the really do keep my wrists warm. They're dreamy.
These are Roz's before warmers. . .
. . .and after. Like a pinto pony.
Paige's before. . .
. . .and after. They are like elegant gossamer fingerless gloves.

Zita and Sharon taught this class and were so well prepared. They had even made at least 10 pairs of warmers to show us how fabulous ours could turn out. They cut templates in 4 sizes to make it so easy for us to see how big we should make ours. Our work stations were good to go and we got to work felting. We all had various colors of wool roving, silk, yarn, scraps of silk and embellishments. They all turned out so differently, but all were wonderful.
More samples that Zita and Sharon had felted previously.
And at lunch Paige and Grace showed us their bouquet of flowers and their hair sticks with felted tops.
And that Sharon finished off the 'Show and Tell' with her amazing, astounding and awesome felt rugs that grace her award winning bathroom. I'm proud to say that she used my hand dyed roving. It never looked so good! Felt on!
