Personalised scarf knitting gift

This is an idea a ‘Magic ball of wool‘ which is a ball of wool for beginner knitters containing little gifts that are exposed as you knit.

The gifts I included were colour matched needle felted letters to be attached as tassels once the scarf was finished.

Needle felting needs

I haven’t been able to do much wet felting as I’m allergic to both wool and soap, so when I discovered needle felting I had a go and found that the wool didn’t affect me.

I’ve only bought wool roving once (and acquired some here and there) so I have eked out my supplies to make it last as long as possible and I look out for ways to use it sparingly.
