I made these for the mushroom swap. Now my partner has received them I thought I'd post them here too.

Felted bag made using Twilley's Freedom Wool. I didn't follow a pattern, but it's very loosely inspired by the Booga bag (http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html) except smaller and with a flap.

And mushroom-coloured socks. The pattern for these is the Cable Twist sock from Hello Yarn (http://www.helloyarn.com/cabletwistsocks.htm). I made them shorter by one pattern repeat because I was a bit worried about running out of yarn, and I used a short-row heel instead of a flap because I prefer the way it looks when doing a contrasting heel. The yarn is Jaeger Extra Fine Merino which was a pleasure to work with. Next time I'm in John Lewis I shall get some more to make socks for me Cheesy

Thanks for looking.

Wait a minute, where's me jumper? On Ravelry of course.
