On the Needles
In My Travels
A second bounty of yarn that's actually a WIP. I'm hoping to be able to salvage some of these actual stitches and create something that's both useable and special!
Any advice or tips on doing commissioned work? I’d love to hear from you- come join the discussion in the Down Cellar Studio Podcast Group and join our little group if you haven’t already.
Project #1 for the Down Cellar Studio Collage Wall- Yarn Wrapped Letter
Took far more yarn than I thought it would- nearly all of a 223 yard skein of Patton's Classic Wool and maybe 40 minutes with of time. I burnt my thumb on the glue gun and my fingers were raw from the roughness of the wool- but it came out great. And I love that its the very first yarn I bought for knitting. So now it will always have prominent place in my crafting environment.
Now I just have to find a real home for it in the studio! For now its doing a bit of wandering to see where it feels at home...
