- Making the Nest – Using Rose Swirls shaped into a bowl
Remember the Rose Bowl I started making last year? I shaped rose-swirls of t-shirt yarn around a bowl, which I decided to turn into a nest.
And at this time of the year, I decided to turn it into an Easter Nest, which I am intending to fill with a mixture of powertex and chocolate eggs. I also wanted to use spring colours, so it was my chance to play with mixing Powertex colours to get the soft pink I was looking for.
As you can see – this is a little messy and I got a LOT of powertex on my gloves…
The moment it was finished I wrapped it up in cellophane to dry for a couple of hours, I still had to unwrap it a couple of times to reattach the ends.
Next Steps – Adding texture…
