The knitting of the bag is complete and now the scary part awaits, the felting of it. I have never felted anything in my life, well not intentionally that is. Yes there was the time when as a busy young Mum, I thought that I would take a shortcut with the wash and put one of Janelles handknitted jackets in the washing machine on the wool wash cycle. It came out clean but the lovely little pink cabled jacket was now reduced to a felted one, I learnt a lesson that day. I suppose if I were to take a positive out of that day it would be that the yarn in the jacket was also Bendigo, so at least I know that it felts well.
Bernie has kindly passed on her felting tips to me, she has also posted these on her blog, if like me you are a felting newbie you may find these really helpful. I possibly wont get time to felt the bag until tomorrow, so as the title of this post suggests please wish me luck.
