I just finished this Felted Tote from my favorite book, One Skein.
(No one is allowed to say anything about the fact that this was not on my UFO list...I started and finished it while effectively ignoring my other projects. Now the baby shower is only a week away, though, so the blanket NEEDS to be finished).
Since it's felted, that means you knit it bigger than normal and then shrink it (intentionally).
So, it started out like this:
It's laying on our ottoman, which means that it started off about 23 inches tall. It shrinks a lot. You can especially tell in the stripe pattern.
Here it is once it's shrunk, on the same ottoman it used to cover:
And here it is standing up, except the handles look dippy in the picture. Alas. I am not an exceptionally skilled knitting photographer.
Pretty cool, hmm?
