I love technology. Not that I'm using any yarn from anything except a thrifted sweater.
Cool things I made this week:
- A rug from a thrift store sofa throw. I'd felted it once last winter, and it lost half its size, down to about 4 by 6. I felted it again yesterday and it is now just about 3 by 4. It must be at least a half inch of sold wool. So wonderful. A nice neutral yellowish tan. Perfect to collect dirty, wet boots and shoes.
- A new pin cushion. Basically a roll of wool felt with flowers and stuff pinned to the outside. I love it. It will be tinkered with over and over.
- Finally, a very cool bird. Kind of a cockatoo with a fancy headdress and fancy tail feathers. I was just feeling really creative and bored by the plain birds I've made in the past.
