I feel like an idiot...the first couple of times I felted, I ran the projects through my machine 3 times, but I could still see the stitches. I discovered today that my washing machine has a heavy/fast agitation cycle...so I felted some more today. First is a pair of booties for my friends baby.
Secondly, I knit a christmas stocking. The pattern was in a magazine that I bought last year, I believe it was Family Circle Easy Christmas Ideas...or something similar. I knit up the medium size...and the pictures show pre felt and felted. I love the felted stocking, although it is quite small (see the tube of toothpaste next to it)...so I'll have to knit it larger for felting.
Felting is so fun!!
