More Felting

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.

2 Thoughts on “Another Felted Bag

  1. Yeah, I know what you mean. I really like the idea of felting, but once I’ve finished the project, I’m kinda like, “okay, now what?”. I do think that there are good felting projects out there, though. I like the ones in the book entitled, Felted Knits, by …can’t remember the author… Oh well. Just to let you know, I’m with you on this one. :)

  2. Having never actually done or researched felting, I would never know it is a “sloppy” project. It looks like it would have taken forever to do & I like the bag. It’s very cute.
