Here is my first felted project. This is the Suki tote bag from Knitty. I used Brown Sheep Naturespun worsted. It took 4 cycles to felt.

When I first started coming to this site, I thought why would anyone want to "ruin" their knitting by throwing it in the washing machine. However, it was actually kind of fun to do. The knitting was really quick on size 11 needles. I think I'll make a booga one of these days.

Nice. I have to ask - when you guys do your own stripes, do you use any sort of "formula" or pattern? Your stripes just look so well thought out...

Ooooo! Just my colors! Very nice! Is this one easy to knit? I made a booga but I need something a bit bigger and this one looks bigger than the booga!

It was very very easy to knit. The stripes are a result of my making a mistake in the beginning and then I had to re-think them to make it work. I just figured it out based on how many rows the whole thing would be. However, it doesn't really need to be precise - just make it however you want.
