… is all that matters here!

Had fun yesterday making two more nuno felt scarves.

I was short of time so I did two things I don’t usually do…

1. Instead of hand dying the tissue silk scarf bases, I left tham white, and

2.  I made two together on one roll of bubble wrap, making sure I didn’t get the two touching during the felting process. As they were two different colours, I knew I was taking a chance that the colours would bleed together or the scarves would stick together and spoil the edged, but …

They turned out really well and were such a pleasant surprise.

The pink/purple wool bled colour into the silk resulting in a dusky pink tissue silk basis. And the wool/acrylic/crayon blend yarn looks stunning on the vlue scarf. The yarn has crinkled nicely and the circles of yarn set in the triangular sections of scarf look like shells so this scarf is reminiscent of the ocean.

I will be happy to have these at the Glasshouse Markets on Sunday.

Which scarf do you prefer?
