Barb Keith with her amusing entry!
Iâ€™m a freakishly, fervent, female, felting fanatic and will forever felt fibers. My fondness for felting formed from feeling felted footwear one fine Friday in my favorite, fancy fiber shop. My fascination for fleecy fabrications will forever fill my fingers and fulfill my fantasies.
It would be phenomenal if you felt I was your favorite fan!!!!
(I frequent my Felt One, Knit Too book often.)
Tell us why you would like to win this book and I will have Shellie (our fearless leader) select the person with the most amusing request 🙂
I have read some preludes for this book and have to use one.
33 Eye-Popping Projects for the Inspired Knitter is a follow-up to the author’s very successful first book on felting (Knit One, Felt Too), which was really meant as a beginner’s guide. I Heart Felt will also be appropriate to newcomers in felting but it pushes the creative edges on just what you can do with felting, making for a hugely imaginative and engaging collection of 33 original designs–she experiments with felting textured knitting (cabled knits, for example), felting colored knitting (either combining yarns, including novelty yarns, for subtle or outrageously eye-catching results or felting Fair Isle and other multicolored knitting), and embellishments, either worked directly into the knitting or added to the project post felting.
