Felted bag and Fudge


I have just finished another felted bag, using my handspun (mainly wool with some alpaca and mohair). After knitting the bag, I threw it into the washing machine with the towels/sheets and it felted quite nicely!!

I came across this yummy fudge recipe on http://angrychicken.typepad.com/angry_chicken/ blog.

I thought YUMMO, but when I looked at the recipe, I realised that it is one of my own favourite recipes!

One-Bowl Chocolate Fudge
16 oz. semisweet chocolate squares or chips
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cups chopped walnuts
Microwave chocolate and milk on high, 1-2 minutes, or until chocolate is almost melted. Stir half-way through heating time, taking care not to let the chocolate burn. Remove from microwave and stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add vanilla and walnuts. Spread into greased or parchment-lined 8” square pan. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm. Cut into squares.

Oh, sounds so yummy. May have to give that a try. Trouble is, I'd probably want to eat it all myself. lol
Love the bag. I've yet to knit and felt a bag.............did try once, but the yarn grew instead of felting. I need to get some good felting yarn.

When buying wool for felting, make sure it is not super-wash.
