I finished decreasing and binding off the basket this morning. Next up, the whole new world of felting! Following felting instructions from my Stitch n’ Bitch book, I turned my washing machine on to hot and threw in a pair of jeans, my knitting and a couple of drops of dish soap.
After about 15 minutes of agitation, I had a felted basket! It’s still drying upsidedown and I wasn’t able to shape it all that well, but I’m excited to have finished my first felting project.
