View Full Version : FO: Suki Felted Tote

I am soo happy with how this turned out! I knitted this for my friend's birthday on Friday, and I was afraid I wouldn't finish in time, but I finished with 4 days to spare... no sweat at all!

I went with Galway 100% worsted weight wool - mainly because they had the colors I needed in the quantity I THOUGHT I needed - now I have like 5 skeins left over - guess that means more felting projects for me! The lighter gray seemed to felt slower than everything else, but it all worked out in the end. It's drying right now, and what I am planning on doing is filling the bag with little gifties since she already knows I was knitting her a bag - the initials on it will be a surprise though!

Oh, that's adorable! :inlove:

And yeah, what is that at the top? Novelty yarn? Beads? Whatever it is, it's a nice festive touch!

The yarn at the top is a deco string along yarn - I believe it was Eros, but I could be wrong. The pattern called for a festive yarn up top, but I wanted something a bit more subtle, because it fits my friend's style better.

Thanks for all the nice comments!

I decided to use 2 colors instead of 3 and to do 6 stripes instead of 8 because... well a bag that is 31"x18.5" just seems HUGE

:happydance: Sure I'll be your friend... provide the yarn and tell me when your bday is! Kidding.

One thing I've just realized about the Galway wool though? It's very... fuzzy - even after felting. Is this normal?
