Felted bag

When I was at the Knitting and Stitching show last November I picked up this Felted Bag kit, I had the wool changed in the kit to my favorite colour which is purple, like many things it has been sat waiting in my stash for my attention. When I am on a long car journey I like to have something to do so I knit or stitch, as we when to Sheffield last week I thought this was the ideal opportunity to get it out.

On reading the instructions I needed two stitch markers which I didn't have, while at the show I had seen a stand selling just stitch markers and she had made them on bead stringing wire, so I delved into my bead stash
and came up with these.
Here is the progress of my bag knitted on a circular needle, it is rather big and flimsy at the moment, I have never felted any knitting before so it will be interesting to see how it turns out.

Looking forward to seeing the finished results of your felting. It is a beautiful colour you are using.

I accidently felted a lovely aran jumper I had (always read the washing instructions lol!). I had not realised I had done it until recently...I thought I had just shrunk it lol.
I am sure the bag will come out lovely...
