Good Warm Little Things

When things get hectic, as they always do this time of year, I like to take comfort in repetition. Making these balls of felted wool was an exercise in calm, from carefully wrapping wool yarn around itself, to combing wool roving to make the outer shell, to the ritual of washing and drying the balls, and lining them up on my floor.

The sunlight makes the cochineal dyed wool glow like embers, and warm the room with their fiery light.
