Yeaaah! My first attempt at felting turned out great I am so pleased, even my very sarcastic youngest daughter was impressed. If only I could figure out how to post a picture of it, so I can post it. I got the pattern from Knitting Daily, Amanda’s Squatty Sidekick and it was great. It knitted up quickly (for me) and it was felted within 10 minutes of hot water in my front loading washing machine. I love this pattern, and will probably do it again, however I would make the strap longer and the bag a little larger.
I am still knitting my BBS for Socks for Soldiers, I am so impressed with Kim, the owner of the group. She has now started a sister group in Canada. I don’t know how she finds the time to do all this, plus knit and take care of her kids.
