Is that a felted kippah? Did you design it? It’s lovely.
By the way, I’m the one from Cherry Hill that contacted you in the fall and then immediately lost touch. Sorry about that. My computer died a painful death. But I am back online and have started a blog. Check it out at http://sunflowerknits.wordpress.com.
How nice to hear from you again, Marcia.
Yes, this is a felted kippah – knitted and felted (I used CozyColeman’s pattern), then needle-felted to add the prayer-full dove. I look forward to visiting you at SunflowerKnits.
Thanks for the link to CozyColeman’s pattern. I’ve done lots of felting projects, but haven’t tried needle felting yet. It’s on my To Try list. By the way, I just posted on SunflowerKnits about the TikkunTree Project. I think it’s a wonderful project and would like to help draw attention to it. I’m also planning on knitting some leaves to send to you.
Glad you found the kippah pattern, Marcia. I’ve made quite quite a few of them already (look here to see a few); they make a wonderful canvas on which to explore a variety of Jewish symbols.
As for needle-felting, I’m afraid I’m hooked (pun intended!). I’ll be sure to share some of what I’m working on once the various projects find their way to completion.
The TikkunTree Project
is a community art project to increase conversation about peace in the mid-east. It encourages "knittivism", the use of craft and needlework of all kinds, as an expression of interest in peace and social justice, without regard to religious affiliation. Please join us!
