Hubby drove me to London Wul on Saturday. I hadn't been since October. Heidi has some lovely sparkly fiber that she has dyed for sale. Even though I can't spin right now I bought a bag of yummy purple. I have been working on a few little projects like a sweet little cardigan for my year old niece. It is a free pattern by Debbie Bliss found at the All About You website.I have completed 5 Dumpling bags and plan to make at least 1 more. Thanks to Nathalie and Deina for your felting tips. I was having quite a time getting the process to work consistently. Your tips to use a pair of jeans in the washer and 1/4 to 1/2 cup of baking soda in the water seems to have done the trick. I used Plymouth yarns Galway Paint 100% wool on this one. They are such cute little project bags. I but a skein of Briggs and Little Heritage in rust at London Wul to make myself another one.Three others are gifts and one is too small (that one I made before the felting tips).
