I finished my Japanese Indigo Daryl Vest just in time for the opening out our FIber Guild of the Savannahs Show at Blick. I finished the hand sewing of it just as this years Project Runway winner was announced... Michelle... perfect timing, right? The original post is here...

I wore the nuno tunic I made just last weekend (my Mother's Day celebration) incorporating some of the yummy yarn daughter Kristin ordered online through Etsy for a surprise Mothers Day present. (Imagine my shock when the package arrived from Tressa Germany one of our brand new Fiber Guild members... serendipity! Kristin had found Tressa's shop on Etsy.)
I have always wanted to try something larger/wider than a scarf in nuno and this was the perfect opportunity. I duct taped 3 of the swimming noodles I use for my classes to roll the scarves together and it was just right. I had to pay special attention to the edges at they were hard to press and roll. I left the felted fringes on the sleeves and along the side edges. Just the right amount of "funk!"
