Description - I [heart] Felt by Kathleen Taylor

In felting, you take a knitted object, subject it to hot water and agitation, then let it dry or subject it to more heat in a dryer. The knitting will shrink, creating a tighter weave that behaves more like a heavy material, a thicker and more textured version of the squares of felt you can buy in the craft shop. It has a completely different look and can stand up to wear better. Those boiled wool slippers? They're made from wool that's been felted."I [Heart] Felt" is appropriate to both newcomers in felting and the more experienced, who wish to push the creative edges on just what can be done with this medium, although an understanding of knitting is anticipated. This hugely imaginative and engaging collection of 33 original designs experiment with felting textured knitting (cabled knits, for example), felting coloured knitting (either combining yarns for subtle or outrageously eye-catching results or felting Fair Isle and other multicoloured knitting) and embellishments and either worked directly into the knitting or added to the project post-felting.
