CROSS ANOTHER UFO OFF THE LIST

This was the first yarn that I spun. It was all done on an Ashford top whorl drop spindle, knit and felted in the washer. It has set along with a green companion on my worktable for a couple of years as I always thought that it needed some embelishment. A Christmas treat was a mult-needle felter and one of those very handy brushes you use instead of foam. I put this project off because I was afraid of stabbing myself through the foam, but this gadget works great. The beads were made from a scrap of Noro that was also lying around the table and the white felt was the first straight from fiber felt that I ever made. A project of firsts that finally got finished!

I love it! Is it your own design?
I can't wait to see it in person.
