I bought 6 skeins of Kureyon to make the Clapotis, but after making a fatal error & frogging it, I think this yarn is meant for something else.  This yarn was quite a splurge for me, so I want to make it into something special, but I'd rather it not be a sweater.  I'd love any ideas you guys have.

I am going to be making felted mary jane slippers with my recent noro kureyon... I am on a felting kick lately and I love the way noro blends together after felting...maybe a messenger bag or backpack with leather handles?

I would like to swap my knits (or amigurumi stuffies) for your handmade journal...pm me!

Yes, that stuff felts great!  I also saw a cute felted blanket made from Noro but I don't think six skeins would make much more than a baby blanket.  I think the felted backpack idea is great!  Or just a big booga bag,  You'd actually have enough for two of those.

I made fuzzy feet from knitty.  I increased the rows around the ankle so that they were higher *living in the north you always get cold ankles* and they felted wonderfully into thick socks.  The only thing ive found to be cautious of when felting Kureyon is not to knit too tightly, especially if you are knitting two strands together, as it will not felt fully Smiley i also made a thick mini-coat for my dads chihuahua out of double stranded kureyon, and felted little mini saddle bags onto the sides to hold his snacks and poop bags!  Cheesy
