Ever tried dyeing wool? How about making a scarf for a scarf swap? Well, Devona at Clever Nesting had just such a chance earlier this year:
Our group celebrates the event with a blind scarf swap. To participate you just need to knit or crochet a scarf and bring it wrapped up in non-descript wrapping paper. Then everyone just takes turns picking a scarf at random and everyone says, “OOOOoooooo, AAaaahhhhhhh!!” as they admire our talented group’s handi work.
But Devona didn’t have time to knit a scarf, so she decided to felt AND dye some wool at the same time to come up with a fabulous blue felted scarf.
I was going for a dark bluish green and I ended up with this bright spring green. Then when I felted it the scarf was too thin and it split down the middle. Craft fail.
