Dances with Wools

Will I be banished if I play with my wool before it's turned to yarn? I couldn't help myself...I....I'm so sorry...I have an addiction.

Hi, My name is Dru, and I have a fiber addiction.

Here's my first bowl...I ran out and got all the stuff to do it and using the techniques from last saturday's wet felting class.

What do you think?

I love it. Give me an idea of scale - how big is it? Great colors and great shape.

it's about as big as a two quart mixing bowl.

There is a reason I avoid felting, spinning, drop spindles, wheels, etc.

The colours remind me of the earth views from space - with a few travel routes in pink!

MMario - ambiguity is cultivated, it doesn't happen in a vacuum!

MMario - I'm not divorced from reality - we're having a trial separation

WMarksII's picture's that bad here too...the other half is not happy..."WHERE WE GONNA PUT ALL THE WOOL NOW"?

The bowls looks really nice. I have recently gotten into felting vessels and am loving it. I haven't tried that technique yet; what I have done so far is knitted and then felted. I want to try your technique, too. The shape and colors are especially nice.

Yeah, up to this point i've always knitted the vessel first, then fulled it. Try this if you get a chance. My form was just a 10" beach ball. Anything with a valve that can be deflated is fair game.

I've had a go at wet felting before, it was fun and kind of instant which is nice. A friend makes felt hats which are just stunning. Love the colours on your bowl. Would look great as a fruit bowl :)

love it. i have been thinking about yarn and knitting as art medium and this felting adds a great texture to the kit

we put birds on things

Love the colors. As far as addictions go, you could be much, much worse off. The knitting addiction I'm surviving in my 50's sure beats the alcohol addiction I addressed in my 20's and my addiction to sex that occupied my 30's...

Love the colours, and the bowl is so sculptural.
