I present, my first felted project:
Oh for cute!
Seriously. I'm in love. In love with this tiny, super cute purse. My heart is a flutter.
The only reason i decided to learn to knit was because of this. I remember thinking (in a high-pitched, somehow unplaceable yet distinct accent): "For to have me make like bag?" So thanks to a pattern from my former neighbor, Denise, and a little help from my all-knowing, really smart ecology professor and super knitter, Sarah, I finished this little bag last night. Although, i still am going to add a little vintage ribbon/button dealy to it. Mmmm.
Today, I'm taking a class at my local yarn shop. It's a technique class covering increases, decreases and knitting in the round. I need to be able to figure this stuff out on my own. I'm so excited. I can't remember the last time I took a class about anything. In fact, I think the last time i signed up for a class was in 2001, at my local Archivers. It was an intro to scrapbooking basics. Good times.
So…happy sunday. I also finished some work this morning that had to get done. And done it got.
