A New Diversion
This was an experiment with a new found craft. I've got the needle felting bug thanks to the gals at Finder's Keepers aka Lamoore Designs. The wool sweater vest was begging for a redo. Nothing that's been hanging in a closet for any length of time will be safe from the needle now! I needle felted the spots where I wanted to take the scissors to the sweater to stabilize the edges. Then I wrapped the new neckline and arm holes with some bulky yarn I've had forever and went to town with the needle. The more time spent stabbing away at the edges the firmer they got so I have a fair bit of confidence it won't unravel (sort of). Back to baskets for the day, tomorrow's Friday.
