heart felt knitsAre you a fan of felting? How about fashion? Tamara Mello’s Heart Felt Knits has 25 patterns for fun, stylish projects that are knit and felted, everything from ruffled scarves and fingerless gloves to cloches, slippers, bags, home decor and more.

It’s a pretty book that’s good for newer knitters who want to make something cute fast, and for those with more experience who like quick knits. Most of the projects require pretty basic skills but make things that you’ll actually want to wear and use, which is a good thing.

I’ve got two copies of this book to give away this week. To enter, leave a comment below by the end of the day next Thursday (that’s Feb. 14) telling me about your experience with felting.

Thanks for entering a good luck!

    Whoa, is that Christina Hendricks? How fun.

  2. Jami M. on February 8, 2013 10:44 am

    Love to felt.

  3. Sheila on February 8, 2013 10:51 am

    I’ve knit some felted coasters and bowls. This looks like a fantastic book to try some more felting!

  4. MoniQ in WI on February 8, 2013 12:16 pm

    I love felting!

  5. Giulia Greco on February 8, 2013 12:37 pm

    I felted everything. When my dog captured and mauled a cowl I made for my boyfriend the only available option was to felt the remnants and cut hearts from it. They turned out beautifully.

  6. jonquil on February 8, 2013 1:05 pm

    I’ve only felted little objects from roving. I would love to try felting knitted objects!

  7. lynaeve on February 8, 2013 1:37 pm

    I have not felted anything on purpose.

  8. Megan Milliken on February 8, 2013 1:53 pm

    Oooh! I haven’t actually tried felting! It’s been on my “to try” list, and this book would be a wonderful help :)

  9. Heather on February 8, 2013 4:23 pm

    The only time I felted was by accident. Combine one wool sweater, one sick baby and one wash cycle set to hot(to get rid of the ick on the sweater) and you get a wonderful felted sweater–for a DOLL. Have always wanted to try felting on purpose but still get queesy. Hopefully this book will help.

    I love doing felted projects – the felting covers a multitude of sins when you’re a beginning knitter! My family has discovered an abiding love for felted slippers so I think I will be making lots of them in the foreseeable future. Thanks for the chance to win a book that might lead me to more felted projects!

  11. turtle on February 8, 2013 10:13 pm

    very cool, how nice!

  12. Nancy D on February 8, 2013 11:40 pm

    I love to felt! I have felted slippers and a couple of bags. I’m always amazed how big you knit these items to get a normal size after felting! So fun!

  13. Siaron on February 9, 2013 12:19 am

    Just started felting after years of knitting etc., and I love it. I have made large pieces to use for wall hangings so far but am itching to try other things too!

  14. Andi on February 9, 2013 1:06 am

    I just felted a few pairs of slippers and I’m keen to try my hand at more! The slippers are HUGE hits and I’m thrilled with them – super cute and useful. Thanks for the opportunity!

  15. Linda Rumsey on February 9, 2013 2:01 am

    I felted a hat for my daughter, by hand, in the sink, and it was really hard work – but fun!
    Next time I’ll try using the washing machine!

  16. Wendy Hatton on February 9, 2013 2:08 am

    I tried making things from olf jumpers and felting them but was very unsuccessful. Obviously a flaw in my technique! I’ve also tried Nuno felting- much more successful and with a lovely result.

  17. Elaine on February 9, 2013 2:26 am

    I live in Sweden and we have “tomtar”, gnoms. I am felting hats to the gnoms but I would like to try other things.

  18. Mary Mac on February 9, 2013 6:42 am

    I am still a novice, but love reading anything I can about it.

  19. Pat morris on February 9, 2013 7:48 am

    I’ve felted slipper, and an IPad case on purpose lol! And a few thing by accident ;-) I’d love to make more,and I’m sure that a book on how and some patterns would help.

  20. Jaan L of Tx on February 9, 2013 7:57 am

    I haven’t done that much felting, but I do enjoy the results. I want to expand my projects of felting to more wearable items.

  21. Ruth on February 9, 2013 8:12 am

    Thank you for this opportunity! Felting is on my list of things to learn.

  22. Charlene Anderson on February 9, 2013 8:30 am

    Love felting. Love knitting. Would love to win this book!

  23. Rose S. on February 9, 2013 9:03 am

    I made one felted purse and after I had knit it, I let it sit for two whole years because I was so afraid of the felting process. To my surprise, it was wonderful.

  24. Karey on February 9, 2013 9:34 am

    I haven’t felted anything yet but I sure would love to try it!

  25. Anne Marie on February 9, 2013 9:39 am

    I have ZERO experience felting (except accidental!, but that is changing TODAY. I’m felting an old red sweater and making valentines with my kids.

  26. Andrea B on February 9, 2013 9:57 am

    I’d done some felted slippers and “pods” – very fun!

  27. Rose :: Fine Craft Guild .com on February 9, 2013 9:57 am

    Felting is something that I just stumbled upon when working with pure wool. I love the result but am still a bit of a novice with it all.

  28. Heather M. on February 9, 2013 10:22 am

    My daughter would love this book. She’s the knitter in the family.

  29. Monica on February 9, 2013 10:27 am

    I don’t have any experience with felting but would like to try it.

  30. OHSue on February 9, 2013 11:59 am

    I have done a few felted tote bags, one I have been using for years. I have also done a few felted slippers and boxes.

  31. Marilyn Coombs on February 9, 2013 2:04 pm

    Hi! I have not had too much experience felting. My friend gave me a pattern for baby bootees which turned out not too bad. At least they were recognizable.

  32. Sandra on February 9, 2013 2:09 pm

    I haven’t felted anything yet but it’s on my wish list of things to try. I’d love to have some beautiful projects to try and the photo on the cover makes me think this would be a wonderful book to make that happen. Thanks.

  33. Knitting Teresa on February 9, 2013 3:12 pm

    I felted a bag and a cell phone case.

  34. Debbie on February 9, 2013 6:14 pm

    I felted an ornament and a cellphone case. Also feet for chairs. I really enoy this!

  35. Dinonut on February 9, 2013 6:51 pm

    I haven’t done any felting, but my daughter and granddaughter love it. I know they would truly enjoy the book.

  36. Jessie on February 9, 2013 8:03 pm

    I would love to try felting. This book looks like a great place to start!

  37. Karen Zumbrun on February 9, 2013 10:04 pm

    Hi, I’ve done a fair amount of felting but I’d like to take it to the next level. I’ve made jewelry, scarves, toys, purses and slippers. Thanks for the giveaway.

  38. Theresa on February 9, 2013 11:06 pm

    I have always wanted to learn felting. I am waiting for a class to open up at an art museum (only 1 and a half hrs away)

  39. Maryanne on February 10, 2013 6:05 am

    I made a bunch of felted mittens for my kids when they were small. The mittens were great in the snow.

  40. Jami Murphy on February 10, 2013 7:35 am

    Love to felt. Our dog Rusty loves his handmade toys. When I’m at the washer, he has as much anticipation as I do.

  41. Redhedhels on February 10, 2013 7:47 am

    My first ever yarn project was supposed to be felted, but I didn’t examine the label closely enough and used superwash wool. Lesson learned! I have successfully felted things since, though, and love the effect.

  42. Elena T on February 10, 2013 9:05 am

    I love felting knit items. I have made hats, purses, slippers, even tried a backgammon board.

  43. lisa on February 10, 2013 9:51 am

    I haven’t tried felting but I have been wanting to try it. This book would be a great start

  44. Emily on February 10, 2013 10:16 am

    Take one 100% woolen skirt, unpick all seams and hems and put in the washing machine for a long time at a bloody hot temperature! Remove and leave to cool, ta dah! No more skirt!

  45. Cheryl on February 10, 2013 10:22 am

    I have felted two cat beds.
    They were not felting very
    well in the washing machine
    until I started adding boiling
    water from my kettle into
    the washer. After doing this
    my felting was successful.
    Please count me in for
    a chance to win.
    Thank you.

  46. Kim Reid on February 11, 2013 2:51 am

    I have used recyled sweaaters to make felted mittens and bags, thanks!

  47. Lori on February 11, 2013 4:31 am

    My sister and I did a felted slipper weekend and had a great time. Months later, I now have three pair of felted slippers in the closet and love all 3!

  48. Ann Devine on February 11, 2013 6:48 am

    I felted a brimmed hat for my niece, and it turned out well. But it was a chore! I don’t have a washer, so felted this HUGE thing in the kitchen sink, by hand. It was worth it, ‘coz she loves her hat.

  49. Marilyn (Merry) Fenton on February 11, 2013 7:28 am

    I LOVE felting and just did 3 new felting projects this weekend. Pick me, pick me!

  50. Teresa on February 11, 2013 7:38 am

    I love felting knitted items and have had only one failure (a bag). My favorite thing to felt is kids toys using the Fiber Trends patterns.

  51. redcarousellion on February 11, 2013 8:00 am

    While I have been knitting more years than I can remember, I have never tried felting out of the fear that I would totally ruin something. I think that it is time to get over that fear.

  52. Kirsten H. on February 12, 2013 10:12 am

    I have never felted before, but I would love to start!

  53. Patricia on February 12, 2013 11:27 am

    I,ve done experiments, like felting swatches. I would love to actually make something useful!

  54. Drema on February 12, 2013 10:46 pm

    I do NOT want the book – I’m allergic to wool! BUT if any of your posters live near Western North Carolina there is a 4,000 square foot store in Asheville NC called ‘Friends and Fiberworks’ that gives classes on felting, spinning, loom, knit, crochet, tatting etc. Go to their Facebook page and look at the pictures (hundreds and hundreds). Just thought I’d pass on the info in case anyone’s close by!

  55. Mary Moore on February 12, 2013 11:10 pm

    I love to spin, and two bags of Alpaca are coming my way. I wonder how well it would felt?

  56. Flo L on February 13, 2013 4:22 am

    love this book!!! more felting projects is on my list of things to do in 2013!

  57. michelle r on February 13, 2013 9:14 am

    Would love this book!
