Needlefelting...

After seeing Marlene's needlefelt bears, I had to order myself the kit and try this out. I've managed to finally get my bears head finished tonight. Isn't he a cutie. I can't believe I made him...yes, him. I think it looks like a boy bear. I think maybe I'll have to crochet him a hat, or something.




I also have the Fiber Trends pattern for the sheep tote that requires needlefelting and I can't wait to apply this technique to knitted felts. Should make for very interesting creative expression. I love it!

Also a big thank you to all who complimented my shawl. I loved knitting with the Zephyr. The wool became even more beautiful after a soak and blocking.

I bought both the pattern and Zephyr here, at Four Seasons Knitting if anyone is interested in making one themselves. The pattern is also adaptable to other yarn weights as well.

Enjoy your weekend and happy knitting!

Oh your bear is a darling! Hmm. I've been having SO much trouble with my knitting lately (everything seems to be going wrong!) maybe I should take a break and do some more needle felting. I only ever did the two so I have lots of supplies left.
