I was working on making some coasters actually but couldn't find any pattern anywhere with dimensions and roughly the amount of skrinkage...sooo...I decided to make a bookmark and test shrink the wool. I used Caron Felt-It by the wayin Rose Garden.
I definately won't make my squares with as many stitches cast on as it would be way to long for coasters. But, as a bookmark...it turned out just fine.
I cast on 35 stitches and did garter stitch until my piece was about 3 inches (I forgot to measure exactly). I machine felted. I LOVE it! I can't wait to do my coasters!!
Just had to share my new skill. Have a great week!
p.s. thanks to those who read my blog...Hugs to you all...

I've been reading actually...tons of reading. But when I've pulled out my knitting, I've been working on my afghan and my skinny scarf! I really haven't done any knitting on my 3 Crosses dishcloth lately. And I certainly haven't finished my second sock made on my Knifty Knitter. *eyeroll* Yep second sock syndrome. I hope everyone is enjoying the spring weather. We've had a late frost tonight. Ick. I'm reading for warm weather.
