Taking the plunge

Impressive, isn’t it! And the good news — this is just one of the fronts, and I have 18 more inches to go before I start any shaping. Why do I suspect that this may not hold my interest exclusively for very long?

Thanks for all the advice and good wishes. I am using Felted Knits by Beverly Galeskas as a guide — it has a felted vest pattern in it. And I am fully prepared for it all to fall apart — but now I’m too intrigued by the challenge of trying to make it work to give up. So stay tuned for picture after picture of black stocking stitch…

Thanks so much for visiting my site and the helpful post regarding my felted accessories bag! You have some great pics of FO’s. One of my best furry friends is named Tigger as well. :)
