Loom and Roses

I finished some things off my loom today.
First a felted Bag I created using the Green Knifty Knitter:

feltedbag2.jpgPattern? My own late last night, playing around, but motified from many of the button hole bags I’ve seen on the internet. It’s very lightly felted because as I was checking on it, it seemed to keep getting longer and longer and skinnier and skinnier and I didn’t know what I’d do with a long tube. It’s also stretched alot for blocking to try and make it a bit more rectangle. Hopefully afterwards the holes won’t be so noticeable.

Next is my Mock Crochet Blanket.

For directions on my Mock Crochet Stitche visit:Here I crocheted around the edges. I used the Yellow Knifty Knitter.

More Pictures of my crazy gal. Two shows one of her favorite positions on our couch when she’s coloring or reading and the other shows her with a pretty rose she brought home for me from Awana’s.

    hey, how do you make a purse with felt in it with the knifty knitter?

  3. matt

    otherwise you have holse too big in it

  4. matt

    ohhhhh…. do you use 2 strands as one????

  5. I’m thinking your talking about some of the Felting Projects I have on my Blog.

    The magic of natural fiber yarns, such as Wool, is when they get hot, and wet, and aggitated, they shrink, and felt together. What would have been a very open knitted item, will shrink down into a tight woven piece of fabric, with no holes. This is called Felting. It’s really fun. But it takes alot of yarn, because something that might be 12×15 might felt down to something 5×10 inches. Have you ever seen a Wool Sweater that was washed wrong? That is the same idea. Do some searches for Felting out there and knittnig and you’ll find alot of great ideas!

    When I felt things used on the Knifty Knitter, if it is a bulky yarn, I’ll use 1 strand, and for worsted weight yarn. I’ll use 2.

    This bag is really cute and I would like to have the pattern. I have got a lot of patterns off the internet. My mother in law got me addicted to the knifty knitter. She can only make hats though. I haven’t figured out much i can do on the rectangle loom yet. If you know anything, will you please let me know. Thanks!
