Here is my second goodbye gift made for the French Fellow in Merton College, who happens to be Scottish!
Very originally, I decided to go beyond the marketing clichés around Scotland, by needlefelting a Loch Ness Monster!
I do not have much to say in terms of technical details, it was mostly made from merino roving, except for the Tam which I needlefelted from Wensleydale fiber that I dyed red using Kool Aid (but Wensleydale gives a very fuzzy felting due to its long fibers).
All supplies from Oxford Fiberworks!
I also wanted to mention this amazing knit&Scotland book – Knit Your Own Scotland – Nessie, William Wallace et Robert Burns become knitting projects in this!
