March 28 Fiber Arts Workshop
Published on Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 10:40am
The next meeting of the Fiber Arts Workshop will be Thursday, March 28 at 7 p.m. Socks seem to be the predominate on-going projects, but if that's not your interest, don't let it keep you away. We're having some interesting discussions of matching fibers to projects, experimenting with the effect of needle sizes (not just for making gauges), and how dye affects texture.
The book find of the month was Knitting Never Felt Better: The Definitive Guide to Fabulous Felting by Nicky Epstein. The clear pairing of photographs of a knitted swatch and the felted swatch and a great variety of elements for embellishment (flowers, leaves, acorns, cords, and more) make this an especially good source for the beginning felter.
