Wool Bag

The bag is loosely based on this pattern. I made it with Brown Sheep Company chunky yarn (despite the fact that every felted project I’ve ever read about calls for worsted weight, it worked very nicely). Knitted on size 10.5 circular needles. I would have used bigger needles, but, well, I own 10.5 and I don’t have any money, so that’s what I used.

Once I got the felted bag all knitted, I must admit, had a moment of panic at the sheer size of the thing. But it felted up beautifully. As soon as I took it out of the washer, I realized that I had not knitted the handles, but those were pretty quick.

I spent some quality time with the sweater shaver after the bag and handles dried, as well. I think that took about as long as the knitting took!

I do think it’s a little out of perspective. It’s a little too long for its width. But I am still happy with it!
