Reviews - What do customers think about Knitting Never Felt Better: The Definitive Guide to Fabulous Felting?

Fabulous  Aug 1, 2008
The best felting book I have seen so far. It seemed as if there were ideas I can use on each page.
Excellent idea source with samples  Jan 26, 2008
There are unique ideas in this book for creative felting, and lots of instructions for knitted patterns that include the "before felting" and "after felting" photos so you can see how the patterns work. Definitely a good resource for any knitter.
Felting Patterns  Nov 21, 2007
Anyone that likes to knit and felt, this is a great book. Patterns are covered with pictures of the project and precise directions for knitting. Excellent purchase.
Knitting Never Felt Better  Aug 23, 2007
Great book, so many variations of things to make, I recommend to anyone who likes to felt.
Not so fabulous...  Aug 17, 2007
I've loved Nicky's previous books, both for their ideas and production value. This book is also beautiful to look at--I bought it just for the scarf on the cover. But then I was very disappointed to see that there really isn't that much inside this book. The idea of dimensional felting is interesting, but just how many pages of scarves with nuts and marbles wrapped inside them prior to felting does one need for inspiration? There are some beautiful stitch patterns shown here, that are then ruined by felting. If you are a dedicated felter in need of something a bit different and lack confidence in creating your own designs, this book is for you.
