I hit a block on the flower cap and decided to move onto another project. I think I'll revisit the hat when I feel I have the proper solution to my problem. Right now, I am working on some needle felting for a neck warmer (not to be confused with a scarf)
The base is a wool/angora blend that I knit on my home machine. After a good steam I started to pull some roving apart and create a sort of organic textile. When I'm finished I'll show you all how it wraps.
I will try to be better in the New Year. Sorry for the holiday drop off!
