This is the result of those two skeins of purple Knitpicks Merino. It's the Felted Evening Bag from One Skein Wonders (love that book!) (Sox got swept by the Tigers, but I finished the bag). Before felting it was 10 1/2 x 9 - flap 6 1/2.



After felting - 8 1/2 x 6 - 4 1/2" flap. The pattern calls for ribbon embroidery on the flap, but I will probably do some needlefelting on it. I need to spend a whole day just working on embellishing my finished bags.


Next OTN - a mobius using a technique I saw on Knitty Gritty today. I'm using some of my Knitpicks kool-aid dyed yarn and I am loving this project!

Nice knitting. I'm going to have to look into those tribbles. They look like a fun knit. :)

Jane,

Very nice bag and I really like mobius. My Mom made me one years ago that I still use. It is perfect for any of us that have to deal with cold weather!

Have a good day.
