i thought i'd start a new thread as that one is getting pretty long!



i'm really pleased with how it turned out!
the mohair in the lamb's pride makes it a pretty big mess when it comes to felting!

keen!  It looks nice!  I'm waiting until after the new year to get started on mine, cause the time's just not there with the endless scarves.

great job

Absolutely beautiful. I must say, I love felting stuff now - it's entirely too much fun and very addictive. I've made felted clogs for me and a pair for my daughter, felted a little purse as a try-it project, and am planning on making a felted bag from the latest issue of Knitters (I think that's the name - I buy so many knitting magazines anymore, I lose track). I also ordered a felting book and when I get it, I'll have to post a review.

That turned out amazingly well!  Tell me, how difficult is the felting process.  I have absolutely no idea how to do it and am only on my fourth knitting project.  
But... it... looks... so... cool...  
Is it easy to pick up?

the latest issue of knitting (www.knitty.com) has a piece all about how to felt stuff that should answer most questions (and it also made me realize i made a lot of mistakes such as using old towels to help with the agitation!)

i just finished my first felted project -- slippers.  i made the mistake of not felting a swatch first, though, to see how my yarn would shrink up, and because of that they turned out huge!  so i've gotta try again.  but it was really satisfyingly easy and fast -- you get to knit on big needles, and your mistakes tend to disappear.  so no worries for beginners.  just knit and test felt a 4 inch square to be safe!!

the slippers were the felted fuzzyfeet pattern at www.knitty.com

Wanna see my "Mutated" Marsupial tote?
I ended up making it into a shoulder bag since I don't like handbags as much. I am in LOVE with it!
I made a few more color changes than the pattern called for and added eyelash yarn at the top. I made an icord strap instead of the roo purse attachment.
