Fore Warmed is Fore Armed
Each year the Canberra Region Feltmakers pose a Challenge.
The Challenge for 2009 is any item for the forearm (fingertips to elbow). It could be mittens, gloves, bangles, bracelets, glove puppets, gauntlets...
A 'mystery' judge will select the best response to the Challenge at the November meeting of the group, which also happens to be their Christmas Party.
In recognition of her/his creativity, the winner becomes the custodian of 'the ashes' for the coming year.
Lis has hand felted the pictured pair of fingerless gloves in silk chiffon and merino wool and embellished them with hand stitching.
Who will be the winner? Keep posted to find out after the 28th November.
