This week I have spent quite a lot of time out and about running errands and going to work: this presented me with a chance to check out some different op shops.  I have managed to collect quite a lot of yarn to make some scarves.

I will do some wet felting first so I have been referring to this gorgeous book Creative Felting by Lizzie Houghton.  It has so many luscious images to inspire.

This book is very informative with clear illustrated instructions and some beautiful examples to encourage experimentation.

I doubt if I will find time in the next day or so but it is something to dream about.  

Once the felting is done I think I shall use my embellishing machine to add some extra interest.

Dian, sorry I've not been near the computer to comment. I love the wools you've managed to buy, lovely colours. That book looks great too. I'm so waiting for the weather to warm up a little so I can do some wet felting, something I've not done before. Can't wait to see some of the scarves.
