Urban felted cushion

bobshome's picture

Well, again, I'm off into an experimental project.
Always looking to create textural surfaces - I am knitting a skein of soft grey Eco Alpaca totally as an icord. Then I want to felt it and use the felted cord as yarn to knit a small cushion. The reverse will be a simple felted surface. I'll post pictures as soon as I can relocate my camera battery charger, urrg!
The gooseberry project is huge so those are still on the needle. The sheet cushion is finished and looking fabulous on the sofa.

I love the idea of felting

I love the idea of felting the I-cord then using it for knitting. Let me know how it goes. - Tom
