felting

I felted up Mom's bag yesterday. Two agitation cycles plus one full cycle in my front loader with a pair of jeans, perfect. I knit up this bag with a double strand of Cascade 220 or Cascade 220 and Noro. I am worried about how my next bags will turn out. I had planned on using a single strand of Cascade Pastaza and Noro, or Lamb's Pride worsted and Manos. I started the next bag with the Lamb's Pride worsted and it seems so loose and open. I am worried that it will end up too small when it is felted. I know . . . I know . . . do a swatch . . . sigh.

Wow, that is a gorgeous bag! What colourways of Noro & Cascade 220 did you use?? I love the effect you got with them!

As for a pattern for this felted bag, there isn't really one, I just kind of made it up as I went along. If you like I will write it out for you!
