Hey Y'all
I finished my first felted project tonight.  I made a lunch bag for work!  It is knit with Cascade 220 on 11 (us) needles.

No real videos that I watched.  I have a great little yarn shop that I go to and they gave me suggestions.  My first attempt ended sadly, I felted the middle of the bag together!!  My blog tells more about that sad story.

Here is what I ended up doing:
I have a front load washer.
I put in three towels with the bag.
I used the Express wash setting.
Hot/cold setting.
Low spin cycle.
High soil setting.

I did it four times I think.

One thing I like about the express wash setting is that they only last for 20-ish minutes.  That way you can keep checking on the bag to see how well it is felting and if you need to keep going or not.
