So, I get a little obsessed with each new thing I learn to knit. My latest fetish was felted handbags. I bought LOTS of the wool to felt, in lovely colors, then realized I can’t really use or even give away that many bags. What to do with those single skeins…I’m now knitting them up into hotpads - to be felted. They seem pretty nice so far. I’ll post pictures when done. I’m doing it on size 11 needles, knit with 2 strands to get thickness.
For felting, I’m zipping them into a white pillowcase cover, in the company of 3 tennis balls for agitation. It seems to keep the fluff out of the drain hose, which is very good.
