What's A Little CH Amongst Friends?

I was gloating to a friend about this purse I just finished making. Not only did I actually finish a project, but I also felted it!

What is felting you ask? Well, basically felting is the process of fusing the yarn fibers together to make stiches look fuzzy. Like this:



He says "Wow, add a ch and this conversation would have gotten really weird really fast." Of course that got me curious as to what he meant. He suggested that I look up what feltching was on UrbanDictionary.com. I did and quite frankly, I'm still a bit traumatized by that.

I don't think I can ever look at my pretty little purse the same way again.

Holy crap! Literally..and with a few fluids thrown in. That disturbed me to the point that I actually pulled my arms into my chest in a protective way. I'm on the verge of hugging myself now.
