FO - Little Slip of a Thing
I knit this bag in about a day and a half...while riding in the car up to Virginia...a 13-14 hour trip, one way.





The pattern is free, located here.

I used Lamb's Pride Worsted. The colors are Spruce and Dynamite Blue. This yarn is great! I've only used Noro Kureyon for felted bags, so this was a treat! It's much softer than the Noro, but it did shed A LOT while knitting it up. It felts MUCH faster than the Noro, though...only one agitation cycle!

The pattern is very easy. I learned how to to do the color changes by taking one of Knittinmitchie's online classes, located here, although I only participated in the first part of this class. I had to figure out how to do the i-cord bind-off on my own.

Here's a picture of the inside of the bag...pre-felting...so you can see how the yarn looks carried over. You never break the yarn, even though it's knit in the round. You just drop one color and use the other, slipping stitches along the way. The bag winds up being very thick, before you felt it! Very cool, indeed.



Here's the i-cord bind-off...very pretty, I'll say, and not too hard once you get it figured out. Luckily, I had my laptop and broadband card in the car, so I found this site, which helped me understand how to do this bind-off.




Thanks for looking!

I've never done any felting before, but that one might actually make my list of "to-do's"..... it looks beautiful!

I'm really impressed, what a great bag. It's so nice that you get to knit while someone else drives.

How thick is the bag now that it's felted, will you line it?
