Adventures in Felting
I have been a busy girl recently! My latest knitting creation is this...my first booga bag. This was a first in quite a few ways - I'd not knitted a bag before, I had to pick up about 70 stitches and then knit in the round and it was my first attempt at icords and felting! I'm very pleased with the result. The felting was acheived by putting the bag and icord separately in the washing machine in net bags and putting 2 pairs of old jeans in to help bash them around a bit. Two washes on 60 degrees later et voila! A lovely little felted bag.
