I've just started this, anyone else out there working on this project?
perfect timing! i thought about this after i had already posted about the felt clogs by fibertrends, and i didn't want to start two KAL requests in one day, so...i'm in! =] this is another stash-buster that has been waiting in the wings for months.
i have tons of gjestal naturgarn no. 1 - pure new wool, single ply bulky - in grass green, sky blue, royal purple, red and black. i'm still trying to decide on the color combo and whether or not i'm going to adjust the size up (still holding 2 strands together throughout) or down (one strand only) and needle size. i've never felted before, so i don't know how much shrinkage to expect in terms of felted vs unfelted gauge. the last time i started this, i used the recommended needles & 2 strands, and there wasn't much extra space in the fabric. anyone have any advice/thoughts on which direction i should take? i think the bag will be cute either way in the end, i just can't decide.
i have one quick scarf to finish & then i'll cast on for this tomorrow night. yay! =]
