Felted stockings

Before felting. Knit with Cascade 220 wool from a pattern I found on Ravelry. (Non-Ravellers can see it here.)

And after felting! You can still tell that I knit the cuff in ribbing, but they’re nice and fuzzy soft and a more manageable size. I don’t know if they would have continued to felt and get smaller and thicker, but I’m happy with them the way they are.

I am going to try needle-felting the names on, and maybe a snowflake on each leg. What do you think — Daddy, or Dad? Now she calls him Daddy, but will that be embarrassing when she’s older?
