Felty Weather

Ahh, it's that special time in Austin when the air smells clean and it feels a touch like fall. The past few chilly evenings have prompted me to turn on my gas fireplace, snuggle in with my puppy and kitty, and start my own knit storm. I love it.
This morning we received some new goodies, including new felting supplies and an adorable sea turtle kit from wool pets. I'm in love! With all these things coinciding on my Tuesday, I was
inspired to re-work our knitting/crochet/felting shelf and share the fuzzy goodness with you.

Wool Pets:


We have carried Lamb's Pride yarn in the store for quite some time, but we have recently replenished our stock.
Enjoy the rainbow:

And we have my favorite yarn by Vickie Howell, Vegas! The colors are lovely and the glittery effect is amazing. I think it would make a beautiful holiday-ish cowl. Plus, it is made with wool and soysilk fibers, which is interesting and green.
This photo does not do this yarn justice...so I guess you'll just have to see it in person.

Finally, let's talk about Hysterical Yarns made by my bff, Amanda Jones. Check on her lovely goods at venusart.org. It's GORGEOUS!!! If anyone wants to buy me the perfect xmas present, this would be it.

I saw the felted penguin at Maker Faire and thought it was so cute! Of course, I don't know how to knit, but super cute nonetheless!

the glory of felting with roving is you don't need to know how to knit! It's like sculpting with wool and fpecial sharp needles.
Wool pets are all so stinkin' cute!!
