There are times....

...when felting seems like voodoo to me. I knit a swatch, measure gauge before felting, felt it, then get the gauge after felting, knit the piece, felt it...only to be let down. When will I get it right!? Knitted columns and rows (width and length) just do not felt at the same speed.

This is the 2nd try of a bag I've designed. It's still not quite right but close.

Ahhhh! It's not a total loss. It's a perfect bag for my wonderloom!

Felting seems such a mystery to me! I'm sure you'll figure it out though and the bag is still cute. And it appears that it will also be useful so it isn't a complete loss.
