2015 has started off pretty rough for me, and today I needed a quick and dirty project that would let me zone out and relax. A few weeks back I got a starter kit like this at my local fiber shop Yarns, etc. to see if I liked it, and boy howdy it sure doesn’t take much to make me happy! Disregarding copious amounts of related literature and all attempts at technique, I basically stabbed wool with a very sharp implement for an hour. Here’s a picture recap:
1. Roving is selected. A hank is viciously ripped off and made into a large ball.
2. Stab, stab, stabbitystabstabstabbity.
3. Ah, pretty.
3. Add whimsy and embroidery thread.
4. An ornament has been created. Purchase here.
In summary, when irritable I stab things and it does a body good.
