Bag’s done!

Hanging from a chairI finished my bag! Yay!

Here it is, hanging from a chair. The pattern was the Felted Tote from One Skein. I bought five skeins of yarn for the project: Cascade 220 in the variegated pink color, Cascade 220 in the chocolate-y brown color, Lamb’s Pride in Rosado Rose, Lamb’s Pride in Tiger Lily, and a random green Classic Elite yarn that I got on sale at the Hub Mills Store. I don’t have much of the brown left but I have some left over yarn from all of the other skeins . It took me about a week of serious knitting to finish. I enjoyed knitting this and I can’t believe I finished it so quickly. I am not in love with the finished product yet, but I am liking it more and more as I look at it.

There are more photos in my Knitting Set on Flickr.

  1. Oh that is great! I’m working on two felted bags myself right now. What I like best about them is you can personalize them with the colors and patterns – they’re so one of a kind, but still utilitarian!
