Start simple, with charming hot pads and coasters for the table. Warm and durable mittens feature elegant knitted cuffs. An eye-catching throw pillow comes in shades of cheery pink.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Felted knitting involves knitting an object larger than you wish the finished piece to be and getting it to shrink and fuzz up by applying heat and agitation-as many of us have already done accidentally by throwing a pure wool sweater into a washer on the cotton towels setting. Many good project books are currently available on felted knitting (e.g., Beverly Galeskas's Felted Knits and Kathleen Taylor's Knit One, Felt Too). One enjoyable aspect of this particular instruction/pattern book is Davis's (Knitting with Beads) discussion of basting as a way to control the flared edges and other distortions that sometimes occur in the process of felting. Her projects-30 in all-include not only felted knitting but also combinations of felting with standard knitting. If your public library patrons are clamoring for more felted knitting projects, you can put this volume in their hands with confidence. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
