Finished, almost finished and still to be started projects!
First, the finished:
These are three felted belt bags that I've finished over the last few weeks. I really like this pattern and, as an added bonus, it's a fairly easy one. :)
And this one is a drop stitch scarf I've made for my cousin. I really hope she likes green! This was also an quick and easy pattern.
And the almost finished is this:
It still needs to be felted but it's a pouch. Once felted it will have strings threaded through the top to pull it closed. I will felt it as soon as I have a couple of other items finished that need to be felted. :)
And the still to be started project is this:
Yup. That's a bunch of clean Anatolian Shepherd fur that will, at some point in the future, be spun into yarn. Here's a closer look:
I'm not sure yet if I will attempt to spin it myself or pay a company/individual to spin it for me. I'm not sure I'm ready to do this. I really want to use the yarn to make something special. I'm fairly confident I can card it into roving fine (and I've just purchased some silver and white raw wool to blend with it) I'm just not sure I will be able to make it into decent yarn...and while I know it will probably cost a bit to have someone else spin it I would at least know it would turn out the thickness and quality I want. So...at some point I will have to make a decision...Oh, and this is about 8 ounces of Anatolian Shepherd fur. I actually have more of it (that hasn't been cleaned yet) but it's from different dogs (two of my fosters) while this batch is exclusively from the two Anatolians at work. :)
