Ta-daaaaaa


Here it is...the final product!  It was sooooo much fun!  The knitting part was good, fun in it's own way and then the felting part was cool.  But the needle felting was awsome!  I LOVED doing that part.  Part of it was the excitement of trying NOT to stab yourself with the wicked looking needles and the other part was the whole putting the fibers into something and making a design out of it.  Hmmm, that doesn't really make any sense.  It's hard to describe just how cool it is to pick up the wool roving and lay it down on the felted field and then make a design appear right before your very eyes.  Gosh, I feel giddy all over again just thinking about it! 


 As you can see I did the front AND the back.  Mainly because I just didn't want to stop doing the needle felting.  And because most of the time when you buy things from a store, things already made, they usually don't think about putting a little something in the the back.  Or maybe it's because it costs more money...  anyhow... I did manage to stop myself before I went too far.  

So my baby girl said she liked it and I am soooo glad she likes it because, as I mentioned, I loved making it!  Now I'm thinking about making something else in the felted wool and needle felting craft.  =-)  Ya'll really need to try this!  Too fun!

I've finished three items since I started knitting this winter.  I'm slow but that's okay, the little scarflet I made, I ended up ripping out stitches so many times I could have made three more things if I hadn't made so many mistakes.  But, it turned out really cute.  I'll put that up soon.  Hopefully I'll do that in a day or so.  

Okay, the other thing I wanted to mention is that the inspection on both of the houses has gone off without a hitch.  Everything is wonderful and now we are just waiting to have the appraisals done!  We're almost there.....  I'm beginning to get excited!!!!!!!  More later!  ;-)

Have a great day!  And thanks for checking in!

Happy Valentines Day!.. It looks amazing! I've never done the needle felting and always wanted too. I keep thinking you have to know how to draw. That is so NOT a skill I have! I am so bummed that I haven't finished the fair isle on the sweater, because I have surgery Monday and I know that will really slow me down! I want to wear it now!
