No felting, still spinning.

I haven’t felted in nearly 2 weeks and withdrawal symptoms are definitely setting in, since I got Daisy (my wheel) back from Suzanna @Zwartbles Ireland after the Goldenshears, where she and Daisy spun up a storm, without me unfortunately, I have been spinning, spinning, spinning. Over the next few days I will be putting this hand spun yarn up on my Etsy page, though I did say that days ago.

This weekend was Market Cross Crafters weekend in Kilkenny City and what a lot of very nice visitors I met from several Countries, so hello again to all and I hope you enjoy the items you purchased from me be they felted or spun. A lot of you asked how I made my felt, so in my next post I will explain my basic technique.

Having 2 exhibitions looming in August, I’m going to have to felt like crazy so after tomorrow which is going to be a dying day, using a new gas contraption which my husband has set up, which I have to admit I don’t really trust, but he says will be Grand, (oh the Irish saying of it’ll be grand means either it’ll be super or a disaster, you won’t know until you try, but every which way it’ll be fine) ha,ha.  So I’ll be back again in a few days with hopefully news on successful dying! and felting.  Here’s a pic of me & Daisy yesterday and some spun gorgeous green Galway mix.  P.s. don’t forget to leave any questions or messages, it’s great to have some feedback from everyone.

About Anita Marnell Fibre Art

My passion for wool and natural fibres has led me to fall in love with felting and spinning. Every item I create is a surprise, texture, shape and colour all blending into natural creations.
