I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Felting a Case for Hogwarts Precious Items

I wish the yarn look this nice as in the picture, but it is more like a beige. I got this yarn from an exchange and I wanted to make something nice with it. SO I am making the felted Knitting needles case for my Precious Harry Potter Stuff . I am a fan of Harry Potter and I guess is the fact that I like that kind of schooling, of having halls and chambers, and mysterious places. It reminds me somewhat of my schooling where they were very strict rules and uniforms were checked on a daily basis. Your socks were checked to see if they were the right color, the hem of the girls' skirts should touch the floor, when crouching, squatting down. Lovely days from school lol!

Going back to the yarn It is Skye Tweed, It is in the motions of being felted and it does not felt like Lamb's Pride. Lamb's Pride felts very wonderfully I tell you is makes such a difference when you use a nice yarn that felts for a felting project right! lol! It came from a smoker's house, and please don''t get me wrong, I am grateful for the yarn, it is just that I think the nicotine alters the way the yarn responds to things and it took about a month of being outside to get the smell of cigarettes out. Tio think that I used to smoke and now I don't like the smell of it in things.

Lamb's Pride , there is a yarn that felts wonderfully. I am making this one a bit different than the pattern that I got from Berroco. You can find the pattern here Berroco Felted Kable Case. It is a very nice pattern, you need to be a member to have access to the pattern.

I can't wait to see the finished case.
As for the felting, every wool that I've used felts differently. But I have noticed that darker colors seem to felt better.
