Today after planting out some herbs, fetching dog food, cooking a roast dinner, and testing some new chocolate moulds with cranberries in dark chocolates, I made another nuno felt scarf.
I really loved the poppy inspired scarf that I made for the art expo the other week, so I thought I would make another one only using a different flower for inspiration.
This time I went for an iris. Yesterday I hand dyed some silk tops and hankies in yummy turquoise, indigo and green so I had some additions for my network scarf (that I blogged about yesterday).
I had plenty of silk left, so I used this to embellish the iris on one end of the scarf, and used a couple of the silk hankies for ‘iris’ shapes on the other end.
Using the beautiful blues and greens silk rovings I added highlights to the borders and a few inlays along the scarf length on which I’d first laid fine cream 15 micron merino rovings.
This is the scarf half-felted:
And here’s the finished result, modelled beautifully by the lovely Jill. Thank you Jill.
