It has to do with knitting

I have to be better at showing progress instead of just waiting for it to be done:) I just have to remind myself. So these last two days I have been working on this.
It is wool embroidery on felted wool. And not easy at all!
The stiff white embroidery fabric is there to help me get the first parts on correctly, then afterwards more details are going on, with thinner embroidery thread. However, getting the thick wool through the holes are difficult, to say the least.

And yes, it has to do with knitting:) It is a neck adornment to a knitted sweater. This one, actually.
It is an old Norwegian pattern, and it keeps coming back in fashion. This one is for my sister-in-law. I made mine years and years ago.

Oh gosh, I can't wait to see!!! Do you have a pic of yours you could show too? I so envy anyone who can knit in that beautiful style. And the neck adornment --it will be so pretty!
