Okay, I finally made something new!

Finally, I am feeling more creative again. Just completed this freeform handspun scarf. I'm really happy with the way this has turned out! Who knew that dog hair could be used so effectively!

Initially, I carded some of the dog hair together with some wool and spun up a bulky single which I knitted into a basic scarf. Then, the fun began, a lot of the dog hair was felted and kind of looked like little flower petals to me. Therefore, I made flowers and emnbellished them with vintage buttons and embroidery. Once I placed them where I wanted them on the scarf, I added some gorgeous Wensleydale locks to add that something extra to finish it off perfectly. Enjoy!
