Masterpiece!!

We just finished our Felting class this week. Boy did we have a great time!!

We had several felting ideas like: 
slippers, mittens, hats, boots, animals, clogs, handbags, totes

Here is a mighty fine felted carpet created by one of Brown Sheep's customers. 



The group at Brown Sheep have shared this story:  

Chad shared his “recipe” with us for the rug, in case you’d like to create one yourself.  He used six different colors of Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky Weight yarn and cast on 73 stitches on size 15 needles and knit for 93 rows.  He knit about 45 pieces, and then felted each piece.  He wanted to have circles and abstracts pieces in the rug, too, so he added them into the design.  After all the pieces were felted, a company put the rug together for him.  Total time for the project?  “It took me one year and three months to knit and felt all of the squares for the rug— in between other projects.”

Who's up for making a carpet??
