Vintage Velvet Scarf

Ah, I finished it. I finished the Vintage Velvet Scarf in Touch Me Yarn on size 8 needles. The color is navy. I've knitted another scarf using Touch Me yarn and felted it, but it's been so long that I was nervous doing it again. I put it in the washer and then the dryer. I had to keep putting it in the dryer because it was too wet. I finally know what damp means. It turned out well, but I didn't get it dry in time to give it to my knitting friend at class on Saturday. At least there is still time to turn it in next week. I am showing two pictures. One before felting and one after.

Pre felting it looks like this:

After felting it looks like this:

It is so soft. I could pet it all day.
Now that I finished this project, I can go back to knitting the Central Park Hoodie, a prayer shawl and socks!

Did you have a problem with worming? I'm knitting the same scarf with Touch Me, size 9 needles , continental style, and it is worming. Shall I continue or start again? Will the worms disappear after felting>

No, I had no problem with worming. Keep going. Once you felt it I think it will be okay.
