Felted Fingerless Mittens

A few days ago, I was working the in-house jury process as scribe and one of my colleagues submitted this fantastic giant felted thistle. We were all amazed at her creativity and I decided to share it with the world here. She is from Scotland, so it was just a matter of time, I guess, for the idea to hit her ! Christine always produces gorgeous nuno felted scarves, bags, fingerless mittens and lovely flowers. There is alot of felt work in our gallery and hers always makes a fabulous impression. Felting is something I did once in a fiber arts class in college. I don't plan on doing it ever again for the main reason that I don't like to get my hands wet ! However, I do enjoy seeing the wonderful work of my fellow artists.
