Hand knit felt placemat

Hand knitted felt placemat. I knitted this with genuine real wool yarn, then machine washed in hot water, which felted the wool. Be sure to do a test piece first if you are unsure if your yarn is feltable. Any pure wool should felt. Check the washing instructions and if it says hand wash only in cold water, chances are it will felt in hot water. Panda make a range of special felt able yarns. It pays to get yarns from the same lot number if possible.

KNITTING PINS

I’VE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF INSPIRATION FROM PINTEREST RECENTLY SO I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD POST SOME OF THE COOL PINS THAT HAVE INSPIRED ME. THESE IDEAS ARE GREAT AND THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE COLOURFUL AND FUN.KNITTED SKELETON

THIS SKELETON IS SO CLEVER. IT LOOKS LIKE THE INTESTINES ARE MADE FROM FELTABLE KNITTING YARN.
