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.
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!
