this is a picture before felting
This is the fishtrap cap from Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac (remember Zimmermania KAL?). I loved knitting that one. Although it was too big for all our heads in the family. I decided to felt it lightly, but David saw me doing it and he wanted to have a go at it. Well, we both enjoyed the rubbing and squeezing and after we were done it was too late. There's a thing called "over felting" I'm sure. I pulled it in shape and put it out to dry, so now it looks like a bucket hat. Maybe Hannah will wear it?!
