Right now my New Year looks to be full of crafts.
Almost every week I will be teaching a craft class at my public library. They will cover a wide variety of topics from spinning yarn, weaving, making bath bombs, and much more. I am really looking forward to these Monday’s.
In addition to this, my mother has decided that I need to needle felt a nativity for next year. I’ve tried to explain that I’ll have to do one animal a month or some similar method to that, she is adamant so assembling the fibers for this project is next.
This year, my crafting goals are a little different. I hope to work on assembling a collection of types of spindles from around the world. This should be a ton of fun, and I am really looking forward to discovering how to use all of these different spindles. In addition to my spindle and spinning exploration (and my new felting projects) I hope to advance my weaving skills in the new year. With the Nativity I am now going to felt, I was thinking about seeing if it is viable to weave the camel coverings in bright and beautiful colors. I do not intend for this to be anything too fancy, but I do plan on making several variations and enjoying the process.
The first step in my new year of crafting, in addition to buying the wool I need, is to cut off all of my old warps (since I wasn’t weaving them anyway) and starting fresh in the new year!
Happy Crafting All!
