The bag before felting:
The bag after felting (two trips in the front loader on 30 degree quick wash produced a shrinkage of about a third & lost the stitch definition -one trip =25% and some stitch definition remained)
It was accompanied by one of the dog's towels, which has a slight browny hue now!
The finished (but not lined) bag:This afternoon it went to market..... well at least to the butchers in Pateley Bridge & did the job very nicely thank you! (No pictures- it was chucking it down with rain.... again!).
I saw some yarn on Ravelry...... I had to have it .....I found it on ebay...... it arrived this morning!
Its Trekking XXX in colourway 100. Colourway 187 came too! Well, you save on postage if you purchase more than one skein, right?The sock yarn that I actually NEED though is some in Gryffindor House colours! Whislt on holiday my sisters Mr requested a pair of socks, he was reading Dark Hallows at the time so I suggested Hogwarts House colours. He did an online Sorting Hat quiz & he was sorted into Gryffindor -so gold & dark red it is! Any suggestions? Me? I am in Ravenclaw!
The Embossed Leaf Socks are finished & ready for proud(?) display on Ravelry. I am very happy with my first (kind of) KAL.
Thank you all for the lovely comments about my photographs from Tiree. I will throw in another one...
