  1. Hello Bendy, I just purchased your book and I must say that I am confused. I have been knitting and crocheting for more than 30 years but I cannot figure out your instructions. I love the projects but I guess I'm just a visual learner. I was disappointed that you don't show any pictures of how to make the actual stitches. Do you have a website that shows more pictures or videos? TIA, Michelle
  2. You all have been so inspiring. The bags I've seen here are so pretty. After seeing these, I caught the bug and made four of them. Pictures are on my blog. I'm planning to make some for my sisters and Mom. I just hope I don't get tired of making them since I have five sisters! I don't consider the first three I've made worthy of gifting. They were just practice, but good enough for me to use. I just started one in Paton's SWS in Natural Plum. I'll put the picture on my blog when it's done. Keep up the great work everyone! Mik
  3. Purlycues, I really like the way yours looks. I have several single skeins of Homespun that I didn't know what to do with, now I know! Thanks!
  4. I have only ever felted in my front loader and get great results. I have a GE, if that matters. I can open my machine mid-wash cycle and the water doesn't spill out. I set my items to wash in the heavy duty cycle and set my kitchen timer for 12 minutes. When the timer goes off I reset my washer to the beginning of the heavy duty cycle. I do this three times in total. I have found that this works the best for me with my machine. I put my item in an old pillowcase that I tie in a knot so as not to get lint in my motor and toss in my "felting jeans".
