More Temptations

I'm getting closer to finishing the secret project - I'm onto the last 3 balls of Rowan Felted Tweed Aran. And although it's very hard for me to stick to one project at a time, I'm quite proud of how I've been doing. This may make it more difficult to finish.

When I first made the decision that I would try felting, I decided that I should order the supplies on Etsy, since the lag from ordering to the supplies arriving on my doorstep would force me to knit on the secret project. But we know how that turned out. The kit I ordered arrived early this week. But I only opened it yesterday. Now that's self discipline!

Overall I'm quite pleased with this Snowman Felting Kit from Bear Creek Design. It is very thoroughly outfitted - with attention to detail, like ensuring that the wire for the arms have pointy ends to make them easier to push through the felted snowballs. The instruction booklet is well written and well laid out. I only wish that the natural white wool (which I do love for it's naturalness) was more of a snow white color than ecru. Regardless of this one small thing, I can't wait to put this little snowman together and enjoy him. He will look great with my snowman collection that I put out every Christmas - and some of them are ecru too.

Edited to add: The first snowman pictured is from Bear Creek Design's Etsy shop listing - hope I didn't mislead anyone into thinking I'd made him myself!
