The prototype scarf made from some of the merino in the last posting.....I have enough for three, I think, so may try something different for the next two:)

Beautiful how you mixed the colors, this would take me a hundred years to finish...Do you have a special knitting machine to do this!!

..this is really nice Barbara!! .... so you have enough for three??? can I be one of them???? :-DD just kidding.... great result, love the colours!

I can't take any credit for colour mixing Samir....that's just how it came out when I undid the plait...and there's no machines involved, just warm soapy water and elbow grease:))

Thank you Bea....I liked the colours too, and I am reasonably satisfied with the result...the woman I bought the merino from hand dyes her own, and she has some beautiful colour combinations...may branch out into something different next time...I always go for the same combinations...2013 may be time for a change:))

No thanks to me Peter, I just laid the fibres out...all credit to the clever person who handpainted the wool...:)

this combination is very nice, telling me stories... reminds me at the Earth,... black is for the soil or volcano, purple is like a sunset...blues are for the seas and sky... and the light green is like the fields at a summer morning... ;-)

Such beautiful colours, Barbara!! I love it!! I can't figure out yet you you do the felting... must have a look at YOU TUBE.... maybe there is some kind of movie there....

Thanks for sharing this beautiful scarf that you have just finished!! ;-))

Thank you Ida:)

That's very poetic, Bea....lovely:))

Felting is very easy, Anna-Maria, just warm water, soap and rubbing to make the scales on the wool 'mesh' together.....just practice....there are quite a lot of helpful videos on You tube..... the best by Terri Pike...:))

Thank you very much Wijnie!

Beautiful!
I read your profile and see you love watercolour painting..........so do I! :-)
Dec 20 2012 01:08 GMT potterjo
so you don't knit or crochet them first? I have a red felted hat but the lady that made it I think knitted them first. It is so warm I hardly ever get to wear it. The scarf is beautiful.

nice colourful work!

Thank you Riet! I must admit watercolour painting has taken a back seat recently, as other things have been taking my time...like felting:))
Dec 20 2012 09:49 GMT bandsix
Knitting first is another way of felting, Jo, but this is 'cobweb' felt, which is very fine and light..so no knitting involved here:)

Thanks hunju!!

Wonderful work, Barbara - I love those colours. Now I must google "felting" and see how it's done!
