Loads of fun was had at Molly Made's latest craft show. It was a little slow at first, but ending up being quite a hit. I mean really, I would NOT have been there at 10am either if I wasn't working. Wish I had taken a pic of the table and my GORG new table cloth, but you'll have to wait til my next show Dec 13th, Winter Blast in Astoria!

My project is to take that design a step further and make a locally-sourced (local to New Hampshire), self-supporting crocheted yurt out of hand-felted cording approximately 1.5 – 2 inches thick."
Her process looks so fantastic!
She met the sheep...
Felted the wool into a giant cord...
She even whittled her own Crochet hook!
After felting the cord she realized that it would take a tree sized hook so she's decided to crochet the yurt with her HANDS. I've been made fun of by my family for crocheting a hat with my fingers. So, I can't wait to tell them someone else is as crazy as I am.
It's going to take a LOT of wool to make a full blown Yurt. So... Kate is accepting donations. If you'd like to help check out her project countdown and donation page at Kickstart.com.
If you can't tell... I am SUPER excited about seeing this project unfold. No Wait... better yet... FOLD, into lots of lovely knots that make a house : )

I've had several interesting experiences with felt this month. I'll post more throughout the week. For now, here's a few pics from an amazing exhibit called Fashioning Felt at the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, in NYC.

So... I've been doing a 3 month knitting/crocheting gift exchange. I've had a great time. My first package arrived a few days ago. She sent me some beautiful brown yarn, which I LOVE! I've worked with bamboo and wool before, but never with a bamboo wool blend. She also sent some wool friendly soap which (I hate to admit) I've never used. But, I'm sure once I start, I will be hooked. She suggested a cowl or hat with this yarn and I definitely think I'll embark on a detailed knit cowl. I have a few projects to finish first, but I'll be sure to post pics when I put it on my needles.
