Me too!! I plan on buying lots and lots more of the knit picks wool. This was my first time using/felting it and I can't believe how well it turned out.

Those are adorable! You should post them in the Christmas stocking knit-along in the knit-along section!

I like them both pre and post felting!

Although couldn't you get more goodies in a not-felted stocking? :thinking:
