Cool discovery: Preview of the Addi “quick” needle felting tool

One of the cool items that was available for preview at TNNA was the addi “quick” needle felting tool. Team IGK practically had to drag me away from the table once I got going. It really feels like sculpting and painting with the wool. Here’s a short video I took while Terry was giving it a go.

Addi has a demo up with a pro felter, Moxie, from Moxie was the person who first showed me needle felting at the Maker Faire a few years ago.

You can see that she holds it a bit lower, like a pen. This makes more sense since the on/off button is down at the base.

I can’t wait until these are released!

Finished knitted item – Chevron Love Scarf


Irish Girlie’s post on her chosen color-combo reminded me that I never updated when I finished the never-ending chevron scarf.


Actually had been finished for a while, but I hadn’t blocked it and it rolled like crazy. It is behaving much better now. So soft – made of 2ply cashmere from Squoosh Fibers (her etsy shop is currently closed). I did a chevron pattern switching off 8-rows of color. As you can see this puppy is loooong but narrow so it will be easy to wrap up close to my neck.

Another knit finished just in time for our usual heat in the days of August and September.
