|Felting at the Quail's Nest Studio week |
and on the right, from Kenyon Park.
I first saw the blanket as the template laid out on the lawn (R side of photo) at our July Kenyon Park Spin-In although she was already felting pieces before that at the Quails Nest Studio Week.
She worked on her art blanket through the summer and into Fall.
We saw major progress when she was working on it at the first Drop-in in Sept.
Terry used a combination of knitting, wet felting, needle felting and crochet techniques.
The Finished blanket shown at this month's Show and Tell!
It is beautiful Terry!

bamboo warp at 18 epi with a bamboo/tencel warp.
|Stephanie wove 9 yds of B&W fabric (above) along with an |
8 in sampler on her Ashford fixed heddle loom (orange),
|Stephanie's Summer Winter tea towels in|
wefts of yellow, black, natural and then grey.
|Nancy wove these scarves and cowl using a blue zephyr 50/50 silk/wool warp,|
all with the same threading and knit this very cute hat for her 2 yo niece.
|Nell wove a 4 harness 2/8 cotton sampler for placemats & a runner|
she will weave for her son. On the left are the Bobbi socks she knit.
|Michelle wove the scarves on her rigid heddle loom. |
The hats were woven using a round pin loom.
|She brought a selection of mug rugs and |
bookmarks from Barefoot Weavers in the Kootenays.
Marg brought a variety of items: M&O's tea towels, knitted then felted slippers,
the variegated yarn socks and her handspun art yarn that she had dyed using Koolaid.
There is always lots of knitting to show as we can socialize or watch TV while we are doing it but the creativity and craftsmanship is also there.
