Felting for the Fun of It

I sometimes find it fun to knit something and felt it. (I have read that the correct term for subjecting something knitted to hot water, soap, and agitation is really "fulling," but more people will know what I mean if I use "felting.) It is, after all, one way to trim one's stash of yarn. Knitting this

helped pass many an evening of watching or listening to the television, usually to a sporting event or a repeat of NCIS or Law and Order: SVU. It used up ten skeins of blue wool that I decided not to use for a sweater and most of two skeins of purple yarn left over from an old project. If I hadn't wanted to felt it, perhaps I could have used it as a bizarre tablecloth. Instead, it now adorns the back of one of the couches in the living room.
