This felted jumper thing has well and truly caught hold. I'm spending many minutes (!) scouring the charity shops looking for pure wool jumpers that I can boil up in the washer. And I'm having such fun. So what if we don't have any clean clothes to wear, my pile of shrunk woolly things is looking great!
Here's the latest creation, inspired yet again by the fabulous Betz White. A blanket. Hmm, now I don't have many blankets anymore since I sent the 4 Oliver's Blankets off to their new homes, so felt (no pun intended) that I needed another one. But I'm going to be very strong willed and send this one away as well - now get this everyone, this is my first Christmas Present made!
I know, I know, I hate the thought of sad people like this myself, but having promised myself never again to have another last minute panic buy in December, I will not get caught out this year. No way. This is the year of Organised Me. All presents will be made. Well, most of them will be. Well, one of them will be. This is it.
I'm really pleased with the way it's worked out - it was so quick and easy. Never mind that the edges are a bit wonky, I've got the bug now. I can see more felted blankets being made in the near future. Just need more jumpers. Off to Oxfam now....
