The Big Lucy - Finished!

Yarn: Main color: Cascade Ecological Wool, color #8049 Stripes: Noro Big Kureyon Color #19.

The Lucy Bag by Two Old Bags

This pattern is really a beautiful style, and I like knitting it. Because I added the Kureyon, the bag didn't felt as much in that area. Now the debate is whether to refelt it, because it is a little bigger than the pattern said, so I have the room to do so.

Here's the Lucy BF (before felting).And here it is AF. Should I refelt it?

I think it looks fine. I REALLY like the color!

If you re-felt it, won't the solid grey parts shrink also - so the difference in the two areas will still be there? (I am not a felter, so that is perhaps a stupid question.)

Fab! I've never had a lot of luck felting the Kureyon - it only goes so far. If you do re-felt, approach with caution (I am thinking).

It's perfect as is.

Lucy Senior is beautiful.
