My friend called me today and was disappointed in her first felted bag she made. She did it on a knitting machine, so I don’t know if that would really matter, but this is what happened:
One side of the bag is bright, the other more subtle in color.
Handles match the bright side.
It really felted hairy, and I mean it’s really fuzzy.
The stitches to sew the bottom together never did felt. You can still see them.
The varigated pattern is large, almost a diamond pattern toward the bottom and as you get to the top, it blends together.
I really didn’t know what to say. The yarn was the same dye and lot number. I have never used Caron’s but does it not felt well, or was this a fluke?
She has 4 more skeins of the stuff and doesn’t know what to do with it now.
