i crochet and knot like crazy but the only theink i make is scarves:) its the only thing that i can do! what kind of yarn do you use to felt and do you knot it tight or loose stitch. i have had no luck with it but i think i may have been using too loose a stitch.
me too the varigated ones are my favorite. im a huge fan of striped myself, all my scarfs have lots of stripes :)
My grandmother taught me to knit when I was about 7 or 8. It's not hard at all. This website has free instructional videos: http://knittinghelp.com/
i have always wanted to try felting like that and have never had the opportunity (ha or the money to get it started!) what kinds of things sdo you make?
side note: im an artist i went for my BFA in undergrad and i have a masters in art education and when i first got crohns it was the only thing that got me thru, the only thing that took me away. then my bipolar went crazy and after that it was like it was all gone! i couldnt do it or even get to feel like doing it i was totally uninspired. it was awful. but now im starting to draw again and it feels good. i feel so out of practice but it feels good to be back in. but the on things i have done this whole time is crochet and knit. i cant knit traditionally (just never could) but i use this knifty knitter loom and i love it so much, i have SO many scarves!!! thats all i make is scarves and sometimes i make gloves but thats it. annnyhowww thats what gets me thru and these hobbies really do help a lot. im glad that others are getting a lot out of them too.
its a portable loom i love to use it. i really am going to try felting soon as i can get the resources together. what do you think would be a good first project? also i know id obviously need the fibres but what is afforadle and easy to work with, and i know i need the needles but is there anything else i need? what do you use for backing?
