Noni Bags' Medium Carpet Bag - Felted
I felted the Noni bag this morning and am in the process of shaping it -- I'll be very aggressive with the shaping. I want defined creases on either side of the bag and a more defined bottom edge as well. I love the idea of a black felted handbag, but this one is much more chic than a plain black bag. The subtle striping makes it interesting.
The flower has been more fun to knit than I thought it would be -- I can't wait to make more!
I'm sure that every knitter has attempted felting (which technically isn't felting but FULLING when done in the washing machine), but in case you haven't, I love the instructions on Knitty - Felting for Absolute Beginners and Felt This! -- both great resources for all the information you need. While the Noni bag is drying and shaping, I'll be finishing my Lace Capelet (#4) with the Kidsilk Haze (Jelly) that I bought in Oklahoma at S.W.A.K.
