Challenge Day 18
Not the best day so far for this challenge – I broke my second needle, but annoyingly a smaller tip broke off so it is actually unusable as a non-sharp bit would actually be penetrating the fabric. 3.5 needles are worse than 3 would have been. So I shall have to change the needle, which is something I would rather do tomorrow in daylight feeling fresher.
It does give me the change to try out the single needle unit if I feel like doing that tomorrow, which might be a good idea as it is more suitable for following a single strand of yarn. I was going to wait until I had exhausted trying things with the multi needle head, but if my hand is forced then I may as well try something else new.
I was reinforcing a thin patch on my slippers, not even doing something interesting. Maybe it got a bit overfelted or maybe the needle was weakened.
At least I was managing to felt slowly, maybe I am getting better at it? 🙂
