Well, I managed to get the felting done - I have now prepared two prefelts ready for tomorrow evening. The third (the darkest one) was prefelted during the course last week.
As you can see from the photos I have added stitching too. Theres a variegated woollen thread which I hope will felt into the background, a metallic thread which might just cockle and a synthetic thread which is very silky - I'm not sure how that will react to the next stage. The prefelts will now be cut up and rearranged, with other bits of wool and prefelts added. The resulting large piece will then be felted. A rather interesting evening to come......... Monday evenings are when I go to the Textiles course. I have been learning a lot about felting, the use of stiffening solution and soluble fabric. As well as playing around with different threads which I had never used before.
The cardigan is now halfway up the first sleeve. Its so useful to have the knitting or some stitching around when waiting for Blogger to upload photos........
This gorgeous Rhododendron is in full flower and is such a joy to see when I'm at the kitchen sink.
