Ta Da! The First Knitting Project I've Finished in YEARS!



I couldn't get it quite as well felted as I'd like since our hot water wash isn't particularly hot, but I'm happy nonetheless. When I do another felting project I'll either figure out how to make our hot water cycle hotter, or I'll run down the street and borrow a neighbor's machine.

Using the two strands of worsted weight yarn ended up giving the bag quite a nice weight and texture. I didn't have enough yarn at the end to make two handles, so I made one extra-long one and attached it at the two narrow sides of the bag. I may stitch a couple of small lengths of ribbon inside the bag that can be tied in a bow. My theory is that the bow will close the bag tighter so I'll be less prone to lose things like wallets and glasses and cameras...

I'm off to finish up a scarf for me, and then I'm starting hoodie sweaters for the boys. I'll keep everyone posted.

Have a great weekend, guys!

That looks nice! I have been pondering putting in a zipper in mine.

I've been thinking about a ribbon as well. I really like it with the one handle!

I Love it!! The one handle is very cool and I too was contemplating hoy to keep it closed. And sweaters! Looks like you caught the knitting bug too!
