It's a way of joining feltable yarns like wool by felting them together so you can't really see the join. At my LYS, they call it the "Spit and Rub" method of joining. Amy's video is here!

I love felted joins! You can only use that method on feltable yarns though, Lu.

True, it's also known as the "spit & rub" method, but I do not use spit. I think it's kinda icky. I use a little spray bottle of water.

I think it might be a stretch...2 skiens of mmm, from my measurements, is approx. 432 yds...

Both Palindromes would require approx. 585 just going by the patterns.

Hmmm.
