A friend from work gave me her supply of wool roving.  I've been meaning to try art felting for some time, but didn't have the inspiration or know where to start.  That is until I saw a wonderful felting blog by Jackie in the UK  What an inspiration dogdaisychains is!  And what a gift the internet is to inspiring art from all over the world!  My first piece is a baby step to what she does, but I am very pleased with it:

Brioche Scarf

I can't believe how long it's been since I've paid attention to my blog.  I've been in a knitting and sewing frenzy preparing for Christmas gifting.  I did very little shopping this year.  If I didn't have anything made, then I gave cash.  The only picture I want to post about knitting is the new technique I learned call Brioche, which allows you to knit in 2 colors, creating stripes.  Here is one of my favorite scarves. It's very long as I couldn't seem to stop!
