I was reading the free brochure at Michael’s for a felted bag pattern. They said to add 2 tsp. baking soda to the hot wash water. I’ve never heard this before, and wondered what the purpose would be. These instructions were for a bag knitted out of Paton’s SWS yarn, I think.
PS: I seem to be fixated on felted bags these days. I’m knitting one after another. I think I love selecting new colors and yarns, then finishing in just a few days. Now my goal is to finish the afghan that’s been in my closet for 2 years :teehee:
