FO: Felted tote bag
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!
