“One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eyes”

I made a miniature felted rose under a glass dome! This is part two in my “Little Prince” series. The sickly sheep is here.

If you remember the book, the rose demands that the little prince place her under a glass dome every night to protect her from drafts.

I gave this to a close friend as a present 🙂

Three-Ply Bluefaced Leicestershire Wool Humbug Mix

My first attempt at 3-ply. The end result looks grey but it’s really a mix of light and dark wool. BFL is softer than the Romney and the Shetland I’ve been spinning earlier.

Comparison with the 2-ply Shetland. As you can see, the three-ply is rounder and thicker.
