Knitted Fuzzy Bag
from the designer: “Inspired by Janet Scanlon’s great fulled bags, I had started with a crochet version. I really loved the texture, because the fulling does really wonderful things to the eyelash, making it really pop out. Meanwhile, Michelle Gillett had made a really smashing scarf for a work friend, using shadow Fizz and black wool, which I found to be both incredibly elegant and strangely hairy :-). So, thanks to popular demand, here is a knitted version at last.”
