After doing a couple of felting projects this year, I’m still not sure what I think about them. I like the idea that I can knit a project together very quickly (and sloppily) and then just by running it through the washer, have something totally new. But it just seems like a way to get out of working hard on something and having it look nice in the end because you actually did a good job on it.
Anyway, this is my second of these felted bags. I made another one this summer for a friend’s birthday, but for some reason I think hers turned out better. I think that after awhile, the whole process of making it started to annoy me. (I’m just a big grump too–that probably has to do with part of it!)
Either way, I think I’ll be taking a break from felting knits for awhile.
