My head cold improving but hung in there for a second week AND I had to go away for work a few days - both has had impact on my fiber fun this week but here and there some fiber activity took place. I am working on my Spunky Eclectic Weaving Club March 2011 project. This was a fun technique and weaves up pretty fast. I used the nuno felting process (project rolled up in bubble wrap after being sprayed with hot, soapy water and rolled back and forth to felt). Here is the finished scarf!
And a little on the process. first with the spacers in while weaving:
Then with the spacers all out but still on the loom:
Off the loom:
Almost ready to roll up for felting - bubble wrap on bottom, then scarf, then covered with netting & sprayed with soapy water:
Close up of felted scarf! I rolled the scarf around a rolling pin and rolled back and forth long enough to get it sticking together, finished in a bowl with my felting plunger (not to be confused with the bathroom plunger!!!). I decided to stop felting while I could still see the weaving structure.
Should have a finished baby hat by next weekend and at a minimum the second bobbin of Mordor which will be plied with a a dark grey Wenslydale.
