I've been trying to make a ball-band pattern felted bag for my sister for over a week. Even though I've done this process many times (albeit years ago), I could not get it to come out this time around. I started it over four times - yes, count them - four freakin times!!! This involved, casting on 39 stitches, knitting 13 rows, and then picking up stitches, and then starting to knit in the round, slipping in the accent color, to give it the slip-stitched appearance. This is how it looked after I ripped it (and I mean ripped it) off the needles! Luckily I didn't rip the needles apart also in my frustration. I've totally given up on this for good now! No more - I'm done - it is in the trash. I even got rid of the yarn I was using because I didn't want to look at it anymore - tee hee!!
