I made one necklace last night.. I think it's kinda nifty. It's pretty simple...
Pink and blue tye dye beads strung on blue wire...
Modeled on me!

It's now appx 4 1/2 " in diameter and felted enough so that the stitches don't show all that much... It feels pretty dense, and I'm not sure if it's small enough yet... What size are coasters anyways? I'll have to look that up.. lol
I like it so far! I want to buy more wool yarns and make different shapes like stars and flowers to felt into coasters to sell on my etsy.. but we'll see.. :D
It shrank to appx 5 1/2" in diameter ans you can see the stitches still so it's not as felted as I would like it to be. I'm wondering if it would be better to throw it in the wash again or to try handfelting in the sink.
I used a little more than one ball of Patons SWS in Natural Geranium on size 10.5 needles. Just a simple 2x2 ribbing. :D Took appx 8 hrs over about 4 days or so...
I had a bit of trouble with the seaming and it could have been done better.. but these are just for me so I will wear them proudly anyways! :)
Here's some better pics in the light so you can see the colors. :D
I've already started working on a simple 2x2 ribbed scarf with the SWS...
And this is the first time I've worked with something other than acrylic.. and wow! What a difference! I love this yarn! It's so silky and slides right off the needles.. and it feels like it's going to be a super warm scarf when it's finished. I'm so excited about this, I can't wait to use the Rumour yarn because it's an alpaca blend and feels even softer. And of course I have no idea what I want to do with that yet! XD
