Show Time and Felted Collars

It's two days until the Maker's Hand show in Picton starts, it's three days long with Friday being 10am  to 8pm. That means leaving home (at least I get to sleep in my own bed) at 8:30am and getting back about 9:30pm. If we can catch the right ferry coming home it's fewer miles and a shorter drive.... otherwise it's the highway.



Anyway, here are pictures of my first felting efforts for collars, this one I've put on a grey knit jacket and I've made buttons that go with it. I still want to make some embellishments for the cuffs, but I'm knitting the body for the other collar .... a black base.  Here I've done the fancy stuff on the ends as that is the part of the collar that will show close to the face.

 The back with detail on the centre which will show at the back of the neck.

It was interesting remembering to put the back neck embellishment down first then putting the prefelt on top.

 




This is the darker collar looking at the front (face side).




The back of the darker collar.

The buttons are made for this too, so as soon as I get the body knitted it's a 'go'!  Then I want to do some more felted pieces for the One of a Kind show that starts November 26th....Aaaaarrrgh!!!

Photos of the garments to come... now back to the knitting machine......!
