I have a set of coasters that are made of felted wool (knitted by me of course). They are very absorbent and make great coasters. They also attract cats like crazy. In the middle of the night, one of our cats steals the felted wool coasters and leaves them on the floor in the hallway.
Using a multi-colored wool yarn that had been given to me as a gift, I recently knitted up a rectangle and felted it. Felting rarely turns out a perfect square, so I had to trim the edges to make a coaster.
I rolled up the extra felted material, added a bow and call my creation a cat toy. So, dear cats, stop stealing my coasters!
I cannot wait to go see the knitted trees at the Blanton museum! They’re part of the exhibit “A Knitted Wonderland”.
It makes me wonder if my group of cedar trees in the front yard need me to knit them coats! After all, I’ve been trying to slowly make my front yard more “Austin-y” and knitted tree covers would help me towards that goal!
