Fulling - AKA Wet Felted Mitten

On the needles: Untalkative Bunny scarf, blanket
In the plans: Mitten, needle felting mitten, and wet felted items of all kinds!

Here's the felted mitten~! So cool. It was MASSIVE before I put it in the wash. I was kind of scared that it was going to still be too big. But, no! It turned out as the perfect size, in this gorgeous magenta/fuchsia colour. I'll make sure to take before pictures next time.
What's silly about this, though, is that I may not be able to wear these until next fall/winter! But, knowing the weather around here, that's actually probably too optimistic. I still need to decorate this one (I'm going to experiment with needle felting) and make the next one. 

The other project I'm finally getting finished is the custom order Untalkative Bunny scarf, pictured here: 
This hasn't been blocked yet, which I'll need to do once it's finished to get all the edges nice for the colour blocks and so that it doesn't curl too much. But I'm really happy with how it's turning out! And I'm really glad that I'm finally able to finish this project.

Other than that, this is the final push for my undergrad. I'll be finished by the latest of April 23. And then it's the last few days to get together my things for the market! Fingers crossed that I sell enough to recoup my table cost! Which means, all Calgary peeps, you should come visit me! My appearance schedule is under the tab for "schedule at Calgary West Country Market." Check it out! On the grand opening day, they're planning a shoot out and everything! So excited.

I made a checklist for all the things I need to do, and I think I'm just about set. One more 12 page paper to research and write, and I just need to finish my honours paper! (Which means four more intense edits in just over a week. Eep!)

Anyway, I wanted to share what I've been up to! I'll make sure to put pictures of the finished scarf once I have it done.

Happy Easter, by the way!
