A little accident

I don't know how it happened, but one of my projects got in the washer and felted! It was on the needles and everything! It was the tshirt I was making out of eingirni (Icelandic laceweight yarn). Yeah, it's sad. I was at the point where you separate for the sleeves. The fabric is surprisingly soft after felting and probably 'geðveikt' warm.

Here is a preview of the crochet bag I'm working on. I love the colors. I can't wait to get more of this yarn. I have to make 16 squares. That is not going to be a problem since they are quite addicting to make, and none of them looks the same. Only thing is that I'm using a tiny little hook (3.5 mm) so it is a little hard, but I wanted a tight fabric so I think it's worth it (to use such a small hook). Normally they recommend 5 mm hook.

Æ! Getur þú ekki notað bolinn í eitthvað annað? Tösku? Púða? Bangsa?

Heklaða taskan verður æði.

How sad! I think Harpa's idea of using it for something else is a good one, especially the idea of a bear, if it's so soft. I hope it works out.

I'm with Harpa too - I hope you can use the felted fabric for something. A teddy bear sounds good, or some clogs for the girls or yourself. Good luck with it, and I hope you summon the energy to start the bolur again.
