felting is fun

November 25, 2007

if not a tad stabby.

This is my first proper creation. I’m happy with it for a first test. I’ve made a few more sheets and pieces of felt but they were not worth photographing. I have most of the tools I need but lacking in one or two items which means I cant make exactly what I want yet. This was firstly a wet felt then cut up and dry needle felted together.

Thems the needles. Yes I have stabbed myself a few times but nothing that stung for more than a moment.

As you can see I managed to get a photo of a sock in progress. I’m liking this pattern. I’ve made these tighter than the last socks because the orange ones fall off my feet now after a few washes.

Cos I’m doing two at at the same time on two needles, both socks are this big, I will never suffer from second sock, and I always know where I made the increases and decreases so a lot less counting goes on. It makes socks JOYOUS to knit, especially when you see how far you’ve got and then remember thats BOTH of them not just one.
