I’m FELTING—Ooohhhh I’m FELTING!!!

Oh, nevermind, I said FELTING, not MELTING.

THE STASHBUSTER SHOPPER is finished!

The pattern was based (EXTREMELY) loosely on MEEMA’S FELTED MARSUPIAL TOTE from STITCH n’ BITCH. How loosely is it? — I started by looking at the pattern and saying to myself, “this is kinda what I want to do, but not really”. So I read  over the pattern and then did my own thing.

I am going to write up the pattern:

Before felting it was 21inches high and 35 inches wide.

After felting it is now 13 inches high and 18 inches wide.

Made from FIVE (5) Skeins of Cascade 220 –held double –on a 32″, size 10.5 KnitPicks Options Nickel needle.

It ran through FOUR (4) HOT WASH CYCLES, ONE (1) COLD RINSE CYCLE (and contrary to felting instructions I do let it spin for a minute or two).

It is now outside, hanging to dry.
