Fuzzy Wuzzy Was a Scarf
So one of the things I've been doing besides knitting is felting. I went over to Mary's house to learn how to felt onto silk one day, and I made a scarf for myself that I love (but don't have good photos of). The next time I went over, I had decided that I needed to make a present for my acupuncturist, who deserves so much credit for both my improved health and moods.
Here's the evidence:
I'm really very pleased with it. Mary helped with the design; I had known I wanted to use the green and the black wool on the black silk, but it looked a little Muppet-y when I laid that out. It was her idea to add the light yellow and the tiny amount of electric blue, and those really make the piece. It turned out much nicer than it was when I first conceived it!
If anyone in the city needs an acupuncturist, be sure to let me know. She rocks beyond all belief.

Beautiful scarf! The colors do go beautifully.
I've seen the felting stuff all over the needlework places - but I wasn't sure how difficult it was...
