Wool loves to be felt ...

and there's been some Heart knitting to be felted going on around here!

Spent Sunday afternoon at Victoria's from Seed Stitch Fine Yarn knitting hearts to be felt and distributed around the store for a contest. What contest you ask?

Well starting February 1st go into the store and guess ...

How many felted hearts they have in the store. If you can guess you will receive the SSFY "True Love" gift.

February 14th

The "True Love" gift will be awarded.


Also, check out the class schedule ... You can learn to knit these hearts to felt in a class by Victoria. Or one of the other classes given by some very talented knitters in our community.


Happy Valentine's Day!


And behind the scenes ...

The Stitchingnut is doing other felting, as well as a couple of hearts for herself and friend, Sammie in Georgia. Since Sammie doesn't have a computer, I feel safe in revealing this bit of information.

BTW, that piece of cotton yarn running thru the yarn is to keep the two holes in the middle of the heart from closing up and to be removed after the felting process in order to insert pretty ribbon. If I didn't do that ... then they would close up during felting & any accidental holes would of course stay open when you wouldn't want them to. That's called the Murphy's Law of Knit Felting!

See that pile to in the back to your right? Well that's the OTHER felting. Pictures to come when all is done.

Okay, go back to your knitting ...

No fair! I wanna guess how many hearts there are, but I'm too far away.

(Those will look cute felted!)

hurray for the heart brigade!
yesterday was a lot of fun :) I even got my red sweater done after I got home so you'll be seeing it thursday unless the weather doesn't cooperate.
I may have to bust out a few hearts for people too, I'm sure there's some red hiding in the stash someplace! (I like the leftovers from the sweater too much to felt though...)
