This one goes to Chrystie!
In more cleaning out my office giveaways, I present this classic from Nicky Epstein: Knitting Never Felt Better.
This book from 2007 is a lot of fun and covers a lot of knit and felt projects, including shibori (using objects to keep parts of the knit article from felting), felting flowers, making slippers, bags, home decor items and more (you can see some of the projects on Ravelry at the link above, or check out a preview at the publisher’s website).
And like many of Nicky’s books, it includes many example swatches showing how different patterns and techniques look before and after swatching, which is invaluable if you want to design your own felted knitting projects.
If you’d like a chance to win this book, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, Jan. 15.
I’d love to know what experience you have with felting your knitting and what sorts of projects you have made. I love making felted bags, and I have a giant felted blanket from my felting book that is one of my favorite felted projects, too.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and good luck!
