a new tutorial

woolly nest & eggs

Yes, I have started to add tutorials to my blogspot, finally.

Just in case you hadn't noticed the links (on the left side of this page, listed under my 'welcome' sign). These are extra pages within my blog that supply further information for my readers: an about me page, a my patterns page (listing a link to all my patterns on Etsy), a my tutorials page, and a my book page (my new book, Whimsical Woollies).

I love online sights with tutorials, and want to have more of the same here for you. My book has certainly helped with this by having dozens of ideas and photos all in one convenient place!

I recently added a nest & eggs tutorial on nest making. The Woolly Nest & Eggs pattern is by far my favorite pattern. I love the textures of the felted wool with novelty yarns, how the ribbons pop out here and there, and the subtle colors, as well as the whole idea of thinking like a bird and building a nest in the first place.

This particular nest, along with my nest ornaments in a box are by far my best sellers for hand-knit items on my Etsy sight. In addition, I get requests for the specific yarns and materials, and their sequence that I use in my own nests, as shown above. So I have created a official tutorial to share with you. Hope you enjoy it, and find it useful.

Happy knitting!
