i am camera


festivals!!!
i really love walking around and fondling all the wool and fibers at these places...i wish i had discovered them earlier in my life!

at the maine common ground fair this year, i purchased this great felted yarn from Susanne Grosjean.

isn't it a luscious color and SOOOOOO soft!!! i'm always trying like heck to felt my yarn, because i really love the way it feels. (i know i could probably do it in a washing machine, but i don't have one...) so if you accidently felt your yarn, why don't you let me know~i'd probably like it!

and i'm planning to go to rhinebeck on saturday, the 21st, and i'm playing le beengo rhinebeck. maybe we'll see each other there? (i'll be the one fondling the felted yarn...)

i am still a little bummed about missing the common ground this year, so it really warms my heart to read about how much you enjoyed it!
next year, maybe we can hook up and fondle together. ;)

lovely yarn, btw!

hey you! i think the easiest way to felt it just a bit, is to put a bit of soap on it, wash it with hot water (as vigorously as you want it to felt, more gently if you just want a bit of felting) and then shock it with cold water and that should do the trick.
