Do you ever just sit down and start knitting? — no pattern, no real idea what’s going to come out of it.  Well I recently did, and here’s what I came up with.

A knitting experiment

I’m an ok knitter, but slow.  Very slow.  It took me a while to finish this.

I used two strands of Lion Brand Wool (for felting) and just started knitting.  After a while, I decided to add a brown stripe at the top.

After I got tired of knitting, I felted it.  I just threw it in the washing machine and let it do the work for me.  (I love that part!  It always seems like magic.)  I added the handles and then it sat and sat and sat for a few days because it didn’t seem done.  I finally decided on some wool dahlias I saw here and here.  My flowers are a variation on both techniques.  And here we are!  The finished bag!
