Felted tote and purse

Felted tote & purse

Since coming back from Alaska I felted my tote as well as knitted a purse and felted it. I am really pleased with the tote. The purse directions were a little confusing and I continued to rip out to try to fix my errors. I guess I got the stitch markers screwed up because one of the handles ended up toward the front of the bag and the flap ended up toward that messed up handle. Better luck next time. I plan to put a felted flower on the flap of the bag but haven't gotten to it yet.

Britney's Shrug and Halter

I was finally able to track Britney down and take a picture of her shrug and halter. I finished the shrug a while ago and knitted the halter in two days. Britney and I had seen the halter on Knitty Gritty and thought it was cute. So I decided to knit it. I already had yarn that she liked and it went together very easily.
