Good Fortune

I finished up the Fortune Cookies on Friday. The seaming went very quickly - I even enjoyed it a little. Friday found me with a stack of unfelted cookies.

20 Un-felted Fortune Cookies

And after approximately 30 minutes in the washing machine, a little drying time and assembly during the reunion episode of Top Chef off the DVR - I had finished cookies!

Pattern: Felted Fortune Cookies by Tanya Brooks

Yarn: Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool, just under 1 skein (there's about 1/8 left)

Mods: I knit the size small, but when I printed out the pattern, I didn't realize that Line 5 was on page 2 and accidentally omitted it. Once I realized my mistake, I tried knitting one properly and in the end liked the mistake one better. To facilitate the mistake way, after knitting 8 in Line 4, I would slip the stitch purlwise in the beginning of the wrap and turn.

Next I'm going to buy some linen ribbon to put the fortunes on. I'll be sure to take pics of the blushing bride and happy shower guests with their little treasures.
