There's something magical about felting your knitting.
The first felted project I made was a pair of slippers. It was absolutely amazing to knit a Shaquille O'Neal-sized pair of slippers, throw them in a hot wash, and pull out a pair of Mom-sized slippers. They were beautiful, and my mom still wears them, even though I've had to patch them a couple of times.
