Strolling through the Promenade, felting knitted cables caught my attention. I’ve never done that, but I think it would make for an interesting texture–sort of like embossed felt.
I lead a dual life: needlework designer, children’s author. I sometimes think I should give one up in order to do a better job of the other. (Any self-employed person will tell you there’s more to do to run a business than one person can do. Two businesses? Who do I think I am, Wonder Woman?) But which would I give up? That would be like Sophie’s Choice. Thank goodness I’m not Sophie.
