felt like doing some felting

I feel like using a cheesy title like that thanks to the marvellous Stitch n Bitch book which re-taught me how to knit in the last few months. I was inspired to take up the needles again after spotting Di's excellent French Market Bag on her site.

Only problem was, last time I knitted was under the careful guidance of Mum when I lived at home and I never had to worry about casting on or binding off, let alone picking up dropped stitches and knitting in the round! Very slowly and with much huffing at the double pointed needles I managed to create this: (!!)

Next installment soon... this juggling photos and things is tricky... rest assured there is a happy ending!

Hey well done! glad to be able to offer you some inspiration :) the wonderful thing about felting something is that you can't see any mistakes... looking forward to seeing the finished work!
