About this blog
A blog about the meanderings of a craft designer and hand maker living in a beautiful island at the end of the earth....I'm a weaver addicted to her little Ashford Knitters Loom, a crocheter, knitter, painter, gardener and grandma. Rowena lives in Tasmania - a world apart, not a world away!

I tried it both ways....knitted then felted ....and then woven then felted.
Both using Meskill's beautiful millspun corriedale in a dark grey (equivalent to a fullsome 8ply).
The knitted try is finished...complete with beautiful button from SoewnEarth.
I'm still coming to grips with the other fascinating aspects of Etsy - wish I had the time to browse more extensively! It's such a wonderful feeling when someone else picks out your stuff and says that it's worthy of mention!
Thanks Urbandeva :)

A foray into felting worked! My lovely corriedale from Victoria is now a garment - serape, ruiana, sleeveless jacket...whateva!...but I need to finfish the edges and pop on the button.
Waiting for the list of stallholders for August Niche before I decide which/what/where.
I MUST download some piccies...............
