Freaky for Felting

I've felted two projects now and I'm totally hooked! It's hard to believe the transformation! Sure, I remember the times I accidently washed a "dry clean only" sweater and got a similar effect. Somehow it's soo much better when it is planned for. I'm also quite proud of myself, because for both of these projects, I took the time to gauge and to felt the swatch so I could estimate the shrinkage (HIGHLY recommended). Now I have 2 cool hand-knit gifts that don't look hand-knit at all! I may even fool Mom when she sees it.

Now I have some of the felt-worthy wool left over and am wracking my brain trying to think of a use for it so I can felt again.

On another note. Has anyone used these? I thought they looked clever, so made some as gifts -- yet to be received or tried, so I guess I'll have to wait. They're pretty anyway!
