It’s very pleasing to start the week with a successfully completed project. I put my jester work bag through the washing machine again on Saturday (60ºC long wash, along with a pair of jeans and my swimming towel to provide some effective agitation) and it felted beautifully:
It’s worth remembering that this was knitted, so it started life looking like this:
Once it was felted, I draped in over a jam kettle to dry into approximately the right shape:
And then, all that remained this morning was to attach the bells to complete the jester theme:
And this is why it’s a work bag not a handbag (turn your speakers on):
So, thank you Sheepfold for a lovely kit… British wool, fun to make, fabulous colours.
