Not only did FMKG knit this past week, but we continued to celebrate the season with champagne, Chocolate and Almond Cake made by Debra (recipe from Nigella Lawson) topped with raspberries and whip cream , and David Lebovitz’s Recipe for Blueberry-Lemon Cake made by  Jan. To top this off Karen H shared some her latest creations which included a felted pillow, a nuno felted scarf and a knitted cowl.

The Infinity Scarf (cowl) is designed by Anita Closic and knit with Plymouth’s Baby Alpaca Yarn. Karen found this combo at Stitches West. She knit a shorter version for a smaller woman….42 inches long and it fits around the head twice, but close to the neck. For those who don’t like cowls that close to the neck, one could just knit longer.

Karen says, “The felted pillow and nuno felted scarf I did at Raina’s Textile House. Kim, the shop owner, gives classes and I have taken three classes there over the past six months. I used fiber that I bought at Stitches West, collected over the past few years and mostly bought  from Opulent Fibers in Oregon and Wonderland Dyeworks in Oakland.  I also found the pieces of Chiffon at Stitches and got the silk hankie at Stitches. Kim does have fiber and silk hankies at her shop and you can buy it there as well.”
Aren’t all of these new pieces from Karen stunning?!
