anyone here done any felting?

I've got a skein of wool yarn, but no idea what I want to make with it. I want to felt what ever I made, I think. LOL

it's like 220 yds.

I felted my pantas.

If you use one strand with your project it comes out pretty dense after 1 run thru the wash (I was using patons classic wool which is 100%)

My daughter has one. I bought her the three ring set. I'm thinking of making a skirt for myself, it's a fun toy.

Now get craftin'!

I have recently started using a knifty knitter, and was wondering if anyone else uses a loom?

I started using this because I can not seem to teach myself how to do it 'the old fashioned way'...

do a search of the board for knifty knitter or loom knitting, you'll get tons of results.

a loom is all i know how to use!

i have only made scarfs and hats. i bought a special loom (non knifty brand) for making mittens but they turned out crazy bad.

i have the four pack set for the round looms from knifty and then i also bought the long rectangle one. that is what i use to make scarfs.

i've attempted to make a drawstring bag with the kiddy size hat (the blue round one i think), it is supposed to be a gift for a friend, but i'm not sure how i can close it or attach ribbon/string for the drawstring, or if i want a liner in it. i just thought to search for knifty knitter forums tonight and i see lots of other projects people are doing so i may start to try those.

wow...sorry to write you a novel. but good luck with the knifty knitting. i love how perfect the end results are and best of all, i understand how to do it! i don't know if i could knit for real; i've never tried or had anyone try to show me.

my job is sending me to training in the dc area from october to march. great for the career and social life but bad for the crafting.

Loom knitter here, who can't needle knit. LOL

On the drawstring purse, you should be able to put a drawstring through the finished edge (the beginning). Then gather like a hat at the other end to close it up.

Speaking of drawstring bags on the little blue KK loom, I recently got around to trying an idea I had last summer and made a dice bag with a woven bottom. The idea worked, but it took a long time to make the bottom and it didn't look quite as good as I'd hoped; in retrospect, I should have saved the time and just made the dice bag like an inverted baby hat. I just mention it as a variant form of bag in case anyone is interested.

 Smiley Would you believe I just read all 22 pages!  Shocked

I just recently purchased KK and have taken my first project apart 3x. The first and second times it was just too loose; the third time I had it wrapped too tight and I couldn't pull the loops over the pegs. Getting ready to try it again.

I came across this site trying to find instructions on how to change colors. (and tips on even stitches!) I'm making a scarf for my sister using two different skeins in two different shades of blue. I want to do stripes on each end and am knitting the middle using one strand for each skein.
