It's time to Keep Calm and Craft On again, and I just realized that I haven't posted at all this week!
I have mentioned before that I work at a local yarn store, and this past week I taught my annual childrens' fiber camp.
We dyed yarn with Kool-Aid, knitted, crocheted and needle felted.
It was lots of fun, though a little hot for wooly endeavors.
I made this little wall hanging as a sample for the kids, to show how easy and fun it is to needle felt.
As I was demonstrating I remembered how easy and fun it is for myself! I bought this book, and I am inspired to try making some little needle-felted friends for the kids.
In my quiet evening moments this week I was also able to do a little spinning on my new wheel.
It's not perfect, by any means, but it is making yarn! I wound off my first ounce or so of single spun, and I am working on some more to ply with it.
I had a few hiccups getting the wheel to run smoothly, mostly from my own neglect in following the directions, but it mostly does what its supposed to do now.
I have a few fun things to try out today with the kids (one of whom is feeling low with a cold) so I may post later on to share that.
What's on your creative to-do list today?
