With the crazy weather keeping us indoors so much lately, I have picked up the needles and been busy. Knitting bags for pressies for very important friends. One a Birthday pressie and one for a friend who is having major surgery tomorrow.
The bags are knitted and then felted.
It hit me that many might not really know what felting is. You knit on big needles and what looks like a huge bag (or whatever you want to felt).
Then you shrink it in hot water in the washer. Yes, you do what you normally never want to do and shrink it. The end product almost looks like it was never knitted. It looks like fabric.
It’s very strong and kind of cool looking if I do say so myself.
