I found some roving and felting needles today so I am ready to begin. I've got half a pound of Falkland Top from Great Britain Cheesy

I'm in to felt-along, at least on the NF months.  Loving the idea of skulls felted onto hearts for those not so into valentines!

I think I am going to start early.  Maybe.  I am leaving in a day but  I really want to learn as much as possible before the felt swap with teamwang and I want to try to get lots of feedback from people as to techniques, etc.. 

Will post anything I come up with...

All these comments are so appreciated and extremely helpful.

Mayerlove,  thanks for the support and encouragement.  You are so right, taking a basic concept and being open to folks going off in their own directions ought to do nicely.

Ruwena,  Yea!!  so pleased you found some nice roving and will love having you in the feltalongs and on the felting boards.  Have you tried the kool-aid dying yet.  Didn't  you mention that somewhere here?

Jenistar,  will be happy to have you in any of these, you already do nice work so will also look to you for help  Cool

Snacker -  You do got the bug!  And you are so right, just start poking and cool things result.  We will so enjoy seeing your work.

Well I tried the kool aide dying yesterday and it didn't turn out quite as pretty as I had hoped Sad I searched the forums before I did it and read about it but I have no idea where I went wrong Sad I wanted the color to be more vibrant. So any suggestions for me? the red came out more of a  pinkish-orange lol. I'm going to try again today I hope.

Thanks CraftyKate!  I was hoping someone would know and have not tired it myself.  IF Ruwena  put some of the already died fiber in the "red"  pot might that work too.   Oh what about the minerals in tap water, would that make a difference?  Good luck Ruwena on today's try.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but here's instructions for yarn dying with kool aid. I imagine it's similar for unspun fibers. They suggest one packet of kool aid per ounce of wool.
