I've been having problems! I've been knitting bags using the magic loop method which I then felt. The bag is knitted in one piece, with the base being a a kind of rectangular shape with curved short ends. Normally the strap normally extends immediately above the short ends.
I've made this bag on numerous occasions with Rowan magpie wool, but now I've changed to a thinner wool (its 200m per 100g). I have changed the size of the knitting needles accordingly. The bag looks normal until I felt it, but then the two strap ends seem to move around the rim so they are no longer above the two short ends.
Has anyone any ideas why this is happening and what I can do about it, please? I presume it's something to do with the way the stitches are tightening during the felting, but I never had this problem before. It's really annoying cos the bags take ages to knit and I bought a fortunes worth of this wool, with plans to make lots of bag gifts for my family.
Any help really appreciated,
