Felted bag

I've mentioned that I've made some felted bags. This was the second one. I used 9 skeins of Nashua Wooly Stripe in the Ocean colorway. It was knitted on Boye circs 16 inch US 8. I love the colors, and the way the yarn knitted up. It was smooth and even. I would gladly work with it again.

You can see in the close-up the very interesting way that it felted up. There is still stitch definition. At first I didn't like these little bumps. But very shortly I decided that I did indeed like them. They add interest, and emphasize the color differences. It adds a tactile feel that is neat. I love this bag. I use it to carry my knitting. It will hold quite a large project, and patterns, and notions. The top cinches closed so that nothing falls out. And I made it!
