What are you most proud of? Creating the design without a pattern. This is entire freestyle creating. A scarf and a bag of roving bits.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This came from a kit from Pagewood Farms. The roving and yarns are high end and luxury in nature. Hard to find anything similar in retail stores. Be careful to use natural fibers, synthetics won't latch into the silk. Bits of ribbon and sequins jammed the felting needle tool, so next time, I'll sew them on with little stitches instead of forcing them. Wool and silk work very well together.
