"Triple-Threat" Scarves

Laying out layers of variegated wool roving...

 
...and adding bits of fringy left-over pre-felt and yarn.

 
Wetting out the project...

 
...and rolling it to make...



...one large pre-felt.


Cutting the pre-felt into three equal pieces...

...and stitching the ends together with nylon thread.
 
After cutting slits into the pre-felt and completing the felting...

 
...three new scarves are born! :)

 
Prior to making my "Victor Victoria" scarves...

...I first made this set of three open-work infinity scarves.

Using leftover bits of pre-felt and variegated wool roving...

...I prepared a large, long piece of pre-felt and let it dry.

Because cutting slits in the pre-felt was new to me with this project...

...I didn't get them to open up quite as nicely as I did with the later pair.

The wool is very soft and light, though...

...and I hope that the recipients will enjoy the warmth of these scarves...

...along with the warmth of my love this Christmas.

Love those scarves. Now if the three recipients are in the same room together then all the better to show off your beautiful work.

I don't think I could have brought myself to cut up that piece of prefelt - love the abstract pattern!

Andrea-Thanks! That would be funny, wouldn't it?
Rachel- I hadn't even thought about leaving it 'whole', but you're right...I may have to make another and leave it alone!

Love the scarves. They look soft and warm too. And after all the work that you put into them, how could a person not feel your love coming through?

A very Merry Xmas to you, Jan and the girls.

:)
