Felting Sample: Before

Before - Felting Sample

Here is a little swatch I knitted up to see how the Knit Picks 100% (Peruvian?) wool would felt. I'm thinking of making a two-tone felted bag with these two colors. What do you think? Maybe not too cheery, but I like it.

I knitted this swatch with size 11 needles. The middle section here is to see how the two colors blend. It looks better unfelted, as you'll see in the next picture.
