last night I finished knitting my backpack to be felted...whoo hooo...if you have not tried this yet I will warn you that it is addicting!
For some reason I seem to do a lot of it in the summer...yes, pictue that, sitting on a beach chair ,90+ degrees...under a pile of wool yarn! Not sure why other than the fact that it is a portable craft and heaven forbid I sit and do nothing!
This is the second backpack I made this summer - the first turned out a little smaller than I wanted, so I knit a monster one...or so I thought. It is important to remember: do not fall alseep while felting...whoops, i closed my eyes for a few minutes last night after putting it in the washer and it ended up going through a full cycle, including the rinse &spin!
Oh well..now Eily has her eye on it in case my things don't fit inside ; )
So..here are the pictures...
