Here he is so far. I have just joined his little arms and I am about to start the decreases that will lead up to his neck.
You can't really tell from this picture, but I am using size 10 1/2" needles, with worsted weight yarn.
When you are felting it's important to knit the pieces very loosely for it to 'shrink' to the correct size.
You can see here that I am getting a gauge of about 3 stitches per inch.
Hopefully it won't snow anymore and I can spend my time finishing him up . . . and not shoveling!
Stay tuned to see him finished and for the felting process!!
Until next time, keep your nose in a book or your fingers in fiber.
