she looks ahead not at me
These also went to Craft ACT for their Christmas tree, which was brought out for the first time today. Unfortunately I didn't get there in time, but I did have a sneak preview yesterday.
I am so, so happy with these pears. They are knit and felted as usual, then covered in clear sequins. And I didn't use strips of sequins, I sewed them one at a time. I'm getting quicker.... but it is not fast.
The wool is Cleckheaton Vintage Twist, a very light colourway that includes hints of palest yellow, purple and grey. The sequins have AB coating so they sparkle, but you can also see the colours of the wool coming through. I forgot to measure them but I think they're about 5 or 6 cm high, not including the loop.
