Felted Flowers and a Stephen West Hat

First off, under the " No But I Could Have " category, check out these cute felted flower scarves:

    I have always wanted to make something like this, but never got around to it.  I think they would be great as a decorative piece, perhaps draped over  a mirror or somewhere else in the house.  Here's me wearing the Morning Glory one on a beautiful day when we went wine tasting up in Napa:


I seem to have gotten side tracked on my stash busting sweater. Decided to start knitting a pair of socks for my husband from my sock yarn stash.  Here's the first one.  Not sure why I chose this colorway when I bought this....


Lots and lots of snow this week up in the mountains -  finally! We are expecting 8 feet which should keep the skiers and snowboarders happy through April.  Not too late to make a warm winter hat, like this pattern called Bandwith by Stephen West.  This version was done by hellskitsch and you should check out her projects page on Ravelry;  a very talented knitter.


  Bought this Madeline Tosh Vintage for my project at a new yarn store in Danville that carries a lot of Madeline Tosh.  It's called A Yarn Less Raveled and they carry a beautiful selection of yarns.

Have a good weekend everybody!  Happy Fiber Arts Friday!



  1. I love those felted flowers, did you make them? they can be decorate pieces in a lot of things.

  2. Your felted flowers are beautiful. I really wish I would spend more time felting because it truly is a great art form. I love the Bandwidth. I am planning on knitting another one. I love those socks. The color is great.

  3. The sock colorway is beautiful! The colors are just like the Napa Valley, the mountains, and the blue sky behind. Lovely!

  4. I love those felted flowers--wow! I like that hat too, it is never too late for a hat in my opinion.

  5. hahah "No but I could have" -- Love it! They are very beautiful.

    8 feet of snow? Wow! I know our ski areas would love to have that, they are expecting some snow this weekend, but not that much.

    I really like that blue yarn.

  6. is there a pattern for the flowers? They are so lovely.
