Something very practical - I needed a nice pot holder or oven mitt for my blue kitchen. I knitted a large mitten and felted it in the washing machine. Looks very warming and if the weather gets cold, there is always the possibility to knit another one and wear them outside (and a fish scarf as well?).
This is how the mitten looked like before felting, not so cute at all:
Have to put something good in the oven now - the official mitten testing meal.
