Felt with feeling
Felting is a popular offshoot of the knitting craze, and Kathleen Taylor (Knit One, Felt Too) has developed some wild and wooly projects using the technique in I Heart Felt: 33 Eye-Popping Projects for the Inspired Knitter. Throwing a hand-knitted object into hot water and watching it shrink isn't for the faint of heart, but Taylor lends knitters courage with patterns for small felted stuffed vegetables, a honeycomb ear warmer and shaggy slippers. Basic techniques for felting common knitted stitches from cabled to Fair Isle and caring for felted items is followed by illustrated projects highlighting texture, color and embellishments with suggested yarns, knitting patterns and felting and assembly instructions. Knitters who have always wanted to try this technique will find plenty of inspiration in Taylor's bright and cheerful projects.
