I made something small for my first try at felting knit items. This cuff is from Rowan 38. I have a front-loading washing machine, so the first tumble didn’t felt it at all. Instead, I sat in front of the tv with a bucket of hot soapy water and massaged, wrung, and pummeled the thing for about 20 minutes until it began to felt. It was quite the effort yet, as you can see, the rows are still visible if you look closely. To finish, I added a little crocheted edge with button loops and sewed beads in.

I also thought some of you might like to see what a Bartlett pear tree looks like in the fall – enjoy!
