Felted Easter Eggs

Hot glue the egg shut, and cover the holes with glue (you don't want your eggs full of water when you wash and scrub them)

All the supplies, eggs, twine, panty hose, wool

put hot glue all around your eggs, it give the wool something to grab onto when you are felting the egs

You use roving wool, which you can buy in multi-colored packages from your favorite Yarn Store

you wrap your eggs till they are covered with wool

Yessirreee it looks like a big blob

take a contrasting piece of wool, a wisp or two 

put that wisp around your egg or create a pattern

put your wool covered egg into a hose and tie shut

have a sink of hot soapy water and get your egg wet and just wash and scrub for five minutes, remember to do the ends also, when finished pull the hose off, and I add some soap directly to it (the hose tends to stick a bit and the extra soap and scrubbing helps to smooth it out) when finished rinse with cold water.  Squeeze it out the best you can then lay them in the window to dry!

they are kind of hairy when finished so you can give them a haircut if you like!

It was fun doing this and Capri even had fun scrubbing the eggs with me!!  Hope you get brave and try it!

What's On and Off....

My needles that is!  Here are some things I have finished and are still working on!  The weather is absolutely beautiful 75 yesterday, unbelievable for this time of the year!

I can't possibly sell the scarf below.... The yarn is Crazy Zeuberball at $22.00 a whack and the small needles it is knitted on no one could afford it!  I loved the pattern of this scarf!  It is taking forever though (size 3 needles)!

This has certainly been the year of strange yarn/fiber to knit with!  The below scarf proves it!
