What's kept me from casting on for anything yet is these guys:
I've been working on more ornaments to felt - and thanks to Kamile and her size 9 crochet hook, I crocheted the last three which is faster and I think it might even give a cool texture after felting. I'm probably kidding myself on that last part, but we'll see. I'm stuffing them before felting which is another kind of iffy thing - I mean I did base this off the pattern instructions in Alterknits Felt, and she talked about not stuffing them too much or else they won't have enough room to felt down. She gave a final weight that they ought not weigh more than, but seriously dudes, I didn't follow the pattern really at all, therefore mine are probably a totally different size (and therefore a different weight to start with) and I'm way too lazy to be weighing stuffing. And come on, what do you need, like a cocaine scale to weigh out something as light as PolyFill anyway? So, we'll just see what happens! isn't that more fun anyway? I'm going to do more embellishing post-felting so I'll take pictures then too - Catherine, I'm stealing your embroidered snowflake idea for the plain green ball! I hope these turn out good - I'm pretty jazzed about them and they're pretty addictive!
