Rhapsody Rose Felted Corsage Pin Donation for State College Choral Society Silent Auction

Wool & Silk fibers and fabrics; curly wool locks; hand-spun yarns; glass/pearl/vintage/crystal/turquoise accents and just a bit of embroidery combined in one funky felted functional item to benefit the State College Choral Society fundraiser.  My number one new year’s resolution was to attend more live music events; it’s only natural that I should support local music.

Spinning Art Yarn

I’ve been spinning small skeins of art yarns, tied up with bright yellow yarn, using mostly merino and silk and curly locks, baby camel and cashmere.  From these skeins I’ll knit soft cowls that I imagine will be like little hugs.  The temperature here this morning was 8 degrees.  It feels good to be surrounded by fiber: the softness and warmth balances the sharp needles of frost that have been climbing up the windows.
