No, this is not a comment about my birthday!
I taught a felt scarf class last month (Lacy Lattice Felt) and realized right before the class that I no longer had any samples. Lattice scarves had been one of the first scarf styles I sold and over the years had grown tired of making them. Plus, it was a fussy technique that didn't always work quite right.
So when I hurriedly made some scarves for the class, I ended up playing around with the layout and realized how much my felting has improved over the years. The result was fuss-less and I really had fun with it.
Here's a view of my original designs:
Well, it's sunny and my birthday, so I'm off to bike along the lake and swim!
