Resist Felting – New Technique

Things are changing amazingly quickly in the world of knitting! Sock blanks, art knitting, what’ll they think of next? Well, Barbara Breiter over at Knitting on the Net has just posted an article about a new felting technique, called “resist felting”, apparently because it applies a method similar to that used in resist dyeing.As shown in the photo, some sections of the material felt, and some don’t, creating a new and different look.

    This is also called shibori felting, and there have been books and articles published for several years on this technique. It’s great! Makes you want to purchase a knitting machine so you can have lots of things to felt.
