Felting With My Tractor

I have wanted to have fun with some felting for the last month but duties have been numerous and hampered by weather and other matters.

The other night I finally got a chance to attempt some knitting for felting. I had this lovely variegated yarn made for felting and I had a plan for a little hip bag…   It’s knit and I flung it into my tractor of a washing machine today to see what the result might be and erhh, let me put it this way; it’s a good thing that I have to put another wash on before the day is over…
