felted bag and WIP

These are the wild legwarmers I'm working on now. I'm trying out lots of different stitch patterns, and, obviously, different combinations of the colors. :-)

This is the felted booga bag I made. I do like the pattern, but the yarn didn't felt up well. I used Ecoyarn, and it's OK, but I had an allergic reaction to it, and it didn't even felt right. I read, afterwards, that white often doesn't felt as well as other colors . . . but in this case none of it was doing much felting.

This is one of the potato chip scarves . . . except I obviously didn't make it long enough to actually be a scarf. Any suggestions for what to do with it?

the potato chip scarf could be a nice hat band!

the felted bag...How did you felt it?

did you wash it on HOT with laundry soap and with jeans to agitate it? My latest hat took 3 full cycles to felt to how I wanted it.
