Wow, this project really took me a long time to finish. Granted I did knit other things, which did sidetrack me. Remember the yarn I was so excited about back in August?
Well, this is the yarn (Paton's Classic Merino) that I used to knit my "Garterlac Inspired Felted Shoulder Bag". After making my Garterlac dishcloth this summer I knew that this garterlac/entrelac pattern's destiny was to become a felted bag. Thank you so much Dave for sharing your wonderful Garterlac Dishcloth pattern.
This is a picture of the bag before felting:
Finally this is the finished product:
I really loved how it turned out. This bag is much bigger than the Sophie bag I made earlier. Once again I can not praise the Paton's Classic Merino enough for how it felts. No piling what so ever, even when the zippered pillow case broke open and my bag escaped. Beautiful fabric results from the felting process. I love all the new varigated colors, too. They are a perfect choice for the garterlac pattern. I'm already thinking about my next felting project....
