Hi there!  So I originally had a brilliant idea to knifty knit and then felt a strap for a Teesha Moore HP bag I made for my SIL.  Well, the finished result ended up being too wide for what I wanted.  I was super saddened, having used to two whole skeins of wool from my stash for something that didn't work.  Yesterday I pulled it out of the drier and realized that it could be repurposed into something I've been wanting to make!  YAY YAY!  So, as of this morning, I now have my very own felted cowl!  I'm quite the fancy lady!  hehe

TADA!



I used a skein of cream and a skein of patterned Patons Classic Wool Yarn and my long pink knifty knitter loom, and its washing machine felted.  The buttons are vintage that my husband gave me for Christmas.

Here's what I started with:

I cut off like a third of it, cut small holes for the buttons, and sewed on the buttons.

And an action shot:

It is so comfy and warm!  I wore it all morning before work.  Me thinks I will be making more of these.  ^_^

Thanks for looking!

 Love the colors!!! And way to make lemons into lemonaide! By the way, had no idea that is what those were called. I have a few I call neck warmers. LOL! It's no wonder my Mom rolls her eyes every time I say it!
