My First Time........

with felt--what were you thinking dirty-mind? LOL
I think I might be in trouble. I LOVED felting this crown from Little Turtle Knits. It's for a special little girl's Christmas. Mine came out a little taller than i expected, but I like the result better. She'll be able to wear it for several years, hopefully.
But really, felting is like magic. You put this MONSTER sized knitted tube with pointed ends in the washer and you pull out a cool crown. Impatient me forgot to before pictures of the crown, pre-felting. But trust me, it was huge. Like as long as my whole arm & hand. What's so great about felting you ask? You don't have to be perfect because it all get mushed up in the final project!
I've got a couple more crowns to make and then i'm moving onto slippers.
