Lynn's Lids — Fibre
I love knitting, felting, and beautiful, durable things, especially hats. I get a thrill from felting; the transformation of loose knitted blob to dense, thick, shaped, wind- and water-resistant hat or a clump of loose wool roving into detailed wool sculpture is a little magical every time.
My work is very portable, so I knit (and sometimes needle felt) wherever I am, but have a sunny studio in my home on rural Amherst Island where I work and also show my hats and fibre art by appointment.
My work is very much inspired by nature and life around me. I want to be able to enjoy all of the seasons in Canada and my hats allow me to stay warm and dry in harsher weather. My ornaments are the creatures I see around me, requests, and whimsy.
