  1. I've finally attempted my needle felting kit! Um... that's not quite how the picture looked, but I love her anyway. Thanks so much, fairy godmother! I had so much fun with this kit, and am getting lots of use out of the needles in other projects too. Blog post here: http://noricum.blogspot.com/2006/09/presenting-fuzz-butt-wonder-goat.html

  3. The shipping made me wince... or maybe it was the % of the cost that ended up being shipping. Maybe you could look into other shipping options?
  4. I've discovered (from a friend) that baking soda works really well for fulling. I just thought I'd pass on the tip in case you wanted to try something other than soap or vinegar.
  5. Wow... I went to the AC Moore yarn party last Saturday, and *boy* I had *fun*. Of course, part of that is the employees recruited me the previous weekend to be an instructor, and since I can't work in the USA, I volunteered in return for a gift of yarn! They gave me $50 worth of free yarn in return for something I was thinking of doing anyway! I've decided I like AC Moore way better than Michaels... much better selection, and much friendlier staff. (Compared to the Michaels in my area.)
  6. Cool! If I hadn't picked as challenging a knit project, I would have made it one of each. (And I nearly picked a crochet project to join the knitting olympics anyway... I don't think she'll discriminate.)
