Wonder Felter

Here is a little video of the Wonder Washer felting 2 pair of French Press Slippers. I'll add photos of the slippers when they are complete :-)

Almost FOs

Ready to felt

And these too

So to save my washing machine, I just bought this on EBay. Some of the other felters say it works wonderfully :-) I love felted slippers and plan to knit many more. I really don't want to destroy my washer with all the lint that accumulates even with the zippered pillowcases.

I'll let you know how it works.

FO: Bitterroot

I have never knited or worn shawls. Until now -

Bitteroot by Rosemary Hill is a beautiful and intuitive knit. I used KnitPicks Gloss sock yarn and #6 Harmony needles.

I have been eyeballing Swallowtail - but will need to learn nupps. Apparently this is a stitch that has many knitters cussing! I searched and found a video on Knitting Daily with Nancy Bush showing how to do this. Did you know the "nupps" rhymes with soups?? (I was rhyming it with cups.)

I think I am hooked on lace shawls.....
