Old School

I made this a few years ago for a class.
It’s a wire armature with handmade felt and needle felted roving for covering.
It’s about 2 1/2 feet tall and has a hollow cavity in the stomach area.
It was inspired by the Venus of Willendorf.

White Pumpkins

More for Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'en!
White Pumpkins
Knit with Patons Classic Merino. Pattern here.
I had some major problems with the pattern... for the life of me, I have no idea why I had to knit all of the seperate sections of the pumpkin (and then seam them!) when the pumpkin shaping is made entirely in the felting process. Bah.

It’s a very cute pattern, though… just go ahead and knit it in the round!

Mods: I altered the smaller pumpkin to make it even smaller & altered the stem piece on the larger one to make it bigger. I added a leaf to the top of the larger pumpkin.

Labyrinth Lux Scarf

This has been my carry-along purse project for a loooong time, but it's finally done...I call it the Labyrinth Lux Scarf because this Noro Aurora colorway has always reminded me of the set design in the movie Labyrinth... it is mostly shades of brown, shot with other color highlights, all wrapped with an iridescent thread that makes it appear slightly glittery (almost in a snail trail sort of way).

The solid brown stripes are Louisa Harding Grace, another favorite yarn of mine- it's 50/50 wool and silk with a gorgeous sheen, drape and feel.
