Finally...

Life is a bit crazy recently, so I haven't had time to post or knit much.

However, I can offer pictures of the finished French Market Bag. It felted beautifully, and because the yarn was double-stranded it even keeps its shape relatively well. The only draw-back is that it's heavy, but I knew it would be so it's OK...



And so the size of the bag is a bit more obvious, this is me, holding it:


I'm off for the next few days - FIL's 60th birthday tomorrow - so I hope you all have a great weekend! :)

  1. Beautiful bag--but most of all, I'm in love with your outfit. I covet that skirt...

    Someday I will be brave enough to try felting. I've heard some horror stories, though, and they scare me.

  3. There are at least thjree of us doing that bag at the mo. I'm just finishing the handles. Looks fab but I'm afraid the skirt grabs the limelight - it's fab.
