I amazed myself...I did it!

I finally sat down tonight and got serious about working with the wool. Boy was it a challenge, but I did it. I made two small pins...I can't show one of them, because it is for a swap...and I can't get a clear picture of the other one..............but they really came out cute. I had so much fun doing the blanket stitch, I am going to try and make a pincushion tomorrow for some more practice. I still have to figure out the best way to start and end the blanket stitch, but I really enjoyed doing it and I want to thank Sandi from Wooly Buddies for getting me involved and truly interested in working with wool. I have looked numerous times for wool sweaters and jackets at goodwill, but they are always well over $10-$15 dollars and I think that is too expensive for me.

Anett, I just left you a message on WoolyBuddies about starting and stopping the blanket stitch, and how hard a time I'm having with it too!
It's reassuring to know I'm not the only one. Glad to find your blog!
