Scarf drawing Winner Is.....

Paula the Quilter, I love reading her blog.  I have to live my quilting adventures though her.

I hope you will enjoy the scarf!!

I have finished knitting my purse and felted it, I think I will line it and am trying to decide if I need to add a zipper to close it. If my purse doesn't have a secure closure I am forever dumping it out.

I did enlarge the pattern, Retro Bag by Shelly, I added 10 rows onto the bottom. The bottom is knitted first, back and forth, and then stitches are picked up around and a slow increase until you reach the top.

I also added a crochet cotton string inside of the i-cord handles, for increase stability. I like to load my purse up.

I'm not 100% sure about the fabric.. What do you think?? Do I need something a little more matchy??

May your knitting needles fly as fast as dragonflies....

  1. Your felted bag is adorable! And I love that fabric...where'd you get it??

  2. Matchy? Whatever for? It's January and we need more color before we fall over from lack of joy.

    Go for the beautiful first-choice fabric, if you ask me. You did ask, you know.
