felting 101

this is my first foray into knitted felting - truthfully, this is also my first foray into following a knitting pattern. that is, knitting with wool on large needles, then washing it in hot water to shrink it and create a felt fabric item. the yarn for this came from frogging an wrap i hated knitted in my all time favorite wool. (the colors remind me of the ocean.) and will probably be making a number of things out of this wool.

after felting:
