Note, the rather bright unfinished felting project above that will eventually become a hat.
At the time, for some reason, which defies me at this moment, I thought this colour was rather nice and would suit me quite nicely. I think I must have thought, that it was a lot darker in the shop all wound up into its nice ball. Its funny how you can change your opinion, when forced to wait and are no longer on impulse buy mode.
I had a lovely time yesterday evening at Web of Wool. Watching Rachel wrestle with several balls of wool at once was an education in itself. I now understand why the word “Intarsia” strikes such fear and respect in even the most seasoned of knitter.
