i have a new hobby!
K got me that wonderful Simply Felt book a few days ago. Man, try googling "Simply Felt" and prepare to find some weird porno, and very few finished objects. I felted two sample squares that I didn't photograph. One looks like tissue paper, and the other is almost that good. I really like the Zig Zag Muffler pattern, so I thought I'd give it a try. The first one I made is a hard tube of lint. I put lots of silk wisps in that one, shame about that! The second one is not as felted as I'd like it to be, but I worked on this thing for over an hour and one end and parts in the middle are felted. I actually like that it's light and tissue-ie. K thinks it sucks. It's my second attempt at a scarf. I can only improve! I liked this project, though. I've never felted before, and it's not like I don't have several pounds of roving to use.
Most of the scarf in awful fluorescent light:
Still awful light, but you can see some of the silk pieces. I just set them on top of the wool roving strips, and it is now stuck.
The other end. You can see that the first two strips felted, while the rest is not quite there:
Silk parts stuck to wool parts:
