What are you most proud of? I'm very pleased with the way my design came to life. I combined knitting, knitted felting, needle felting and a touch of jewelry design to actualize the vision I had in my head. I hope I'll be able to tell you soon that I'm proud of the ribbon I won at the Fair! UPDATE JULY 2012: I am very proud to say that my Barcelona Paseo Ensemble won a 1st place prize in the Knitting - Adult Clothing category and was the Division Winner!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with a vision, put it down on paper and see if you can make it happen. Don't be afraid to experiment with needle felting as a way to incorporate lines and color into your knitted fabric. I suggest you try it first with some test swatches and see what you can come up with.

It was an exciting day because my Peruvian hat/mitten knitted and felted set won 1st place in the knitting hat/hat set category.
