Fair isle and felting fun continues

Check this out!

This is the pre-felt stage. Notice the biggest one? That's Diakeito Diamuse. The other two are both Noro Kureyon. One is just pure Kureyon which the Fair Isle one is Kureyon and Manos del Uruguay.

Now look at this:

Felted. The Diamusee fish felted down almost half! Now it is the smallest one. I put the pure Kureyon one in twice. Isn't is amazing how all three are from the exact same pattern, the same number of stiches and everything. Yet they came out differently. Three individual fishes.

Don't ask me what I am going to do with them.

The Fair Isle bag is growing too.

Almost done. Now I have to figure out what I want with the straps. I-cord or pre-made?

Stay tuned. This is fun, fun, fun.
