felted bag

I've been contemplating making a felted bag for quite a while. When I saw this beauty, my mind was made up. I even have some of the Cleckheaton Vintage wool, although in a different colourway. Will keep progress posted.. As I knit the base, I keep thinking of possible different stitches for the unfelted part. Sort of an old fashioned embroidery sampler. I have such a sampler and am fascinated by the detail in it. It's in the form of a dolls apron and has probably two dozen different stitches including hemstitching on it. All done in superfine silk thread on fine lawn. Unfortunately, its condition has suffered over the years.

Glad you like my Yurt Bag. It's a fun design with lots of scope for personalising it.

Sharon of has knitted one too. She and I have been working out the text for a "proper" pattern, and I hope to have that on my blog and on Ravelry soon.

Good luck with yours - I'd love to see how it goes!
