I (heart) Felt
33 Eye-popping Projects for the Inspired KnitterBook - 2008
Felting is a simple process: take a knitted object--anything from a purse to a holiday stocking--douse it in water, subject it to serious agitation, and let it dry. The result is cozy, dense, and durable--and totally different from anything you've ever knitted before.
In the follow-up to her best-selling Knit One, Felt Too, noted knitting designer Kathleen Taylor reveals just how to felt colorful Fair Isle, delicate cables, and blended novelty yarns. Her hugely imaginative projects, including gorgeous cabled handbags, stylish beaded hats and adorable appliqu’ed mittens, come with easy-to-follow directions and go far beyond basic felting.

This follow-up to the successful "Knit One, Felt Too" pushes the creative edges on just what crafters can do with felting. Taylor offers an engaging collection of 33 original designs in which she experiments with felting textured knitting, felting colored knitting, and more.
"I Heart Felt: 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 eyecatching results or felting Fair Isle and other multicolored knitting), and embellishments, either worked directly into the knitting or added to the project post felting.
