Nice ponchos Lynn!
Okay, here's my most recent project. The felted Fuzzy Feet slippers from knitty.com (great free pattern!).
The picture shows the before and after felting. The before one is of a second pair I'm making. I made the cuff about twice as long in the un-felted one, and with the same purple yarn as the foot, but otherwise they're the same size, and mostly the same yarn, that purple color. Mountain Mohair yarn, I think it's called, a wool-mohair blend. Made for VERY Fuzzy Feet, with all the mohair sticking out! (The white fuzzy stuff in the felted slipper. Makes it appear a lighter shade of purple than before felting!)
Felting took about 1/2 hour of agitation in the washing machine. I used hot water, a little soap, and (very important) two pairs of jeans, to help the agitation and felting process. The hot water was especially nice when I kept trying on the wet slippers, to see if they were felted enough!
