Look up 'cable cast on' or 'knitting on' either one of those will work - but obviously a 2 tailed cast on won't because you've only got one piece of yarn!

Greenchick - apparently washer friendly is super wash Undecided  Didn't felt at all after 2 washes, but shrank a bit, which is weird considering that the bit of yarn I tested went into a bead.  I frogged it and hunted on the web for a UK supplier of cheap feltable yarn, and found these guys, for those who might find it useful:


I will need to dye the yarn though I knit it up, but still it will give me a lot of better options than those available from that stupid yarn stall owner... Wink

Incidentally, the frogged yarn is being used to make a Miffy version of the alien illusion scarf, with matching hat and gloves Cheesy  Yay!


I am so boring I think people should be interested in me.

I am going to start this project and I had a question and it is probably a dumb one but I am gonna ask it anyway....do you hold 2 strands together throughout the whole project or just for the bottom of the bag??

The whole project. It makes it a little bit sturdier. I think you could also just use one strand of bulky instead of two worsted. Either way works well.

My version of the marsupial tote.  It didn't quite turn out as I had expected, but overall, I'm pleased and surprized at how durable the felted material really is.

Hi there-
I am new to this forum; I am sort of a terminal beginner when it comes to knitting but hopefully S&B will change that (plus I'm hoping for the new book from Santa!). Anyway, I managed to finish my tote (I knit with Patons merino classic), and have felted it. I seem to have the opposite results than others. Mine seemed to shrink up much more than others pictured and it is really dense and felted. I can't make out the stockinette (sp) stitches at all- it really does looks like felt. I put it through a short wash cycle on hot (not that hot though... ) and it felted up in about 10 minutes. So what I'd like to know is: are my results from the wool I used or because I washed it for too long? I do like the effect; I'd just like to know how to make a bag look more like those pictured earlier in the thread.

i knit a mini meema as a cute little purse for my stepmum for Xmas.

i used 8ply/DK wool instead of worsted and 7mm circs to get the smaller size. It's my favourite felted object thus far and I'm going to knit a regular size one for myself in the new year (but not in such neutral colours Wink )

katykeene, I can't see your picture, but I'm sure its really cute. I had a question regarding the tote, how long would you say it took you to make one of these? I'm wondering if i still have time to make one for my mum for xmas.. Wink
