Fun and games with felting.



I know, they don't seem to be too different because I forgot to include my hand for scale. Roughly, it shrank about 50% lengthways and 25% widthways. It was Jo Sharp DK and it took four cycles on hot in with my washing to felt this far. I'd like it to felt more, so I feel more swatching coming on.I have an idea for a felted thing for my One Skein Secret Pal.

Here is another One Skein Secret Pal giftiee, its a spiral rib bag from the One Skein Book its made from Noro Silk Garden. It looks a bit like a sea anenome because I haven't woven in the ends at the top where the little tabs are. Next time you see it it will look more sensible. I'm really enjoying this little knit!
