Conversion, transformation ... alchemy?

This is what keeps me coming back to felting again and again.
The transformation of wool yarn into felt.
And the way lots of separate colours become a visual mixture.

Although sometimes a pretty knitted fabric has to be sacrificed. No pain, no gain, right?

That is so amazing. I love how the stitches disappear and become all blurred together and the colors become a mixture of hues. They are quite a wonderful thing.

I still find it hard to believe that THAT pear becomes THIS pear. You are very clever, you know.

Merry Christmas to you and yours! And good luck with the move on the weekend.

Your before pictures are beautiful, too. You could put one with the finished pear and amaze people.
