An FO!!


I finished my Purse for The Knitted Purse Swap 2. I am very pleased with it, and think it came out pretty good. I couldn't believe how incredibly soft the yarn is - it is Royal Bamboo by Plymouth. I hope that it is durable. One thing that I did not like about working with this yarn is that it splits like crazy! There are about 692 strands, and some always want to stay behind when you try to knit ... ugh! What a pain! But the fabric has a lovely drape, and I can see that it would make a wonderful summer sweater. I might have to bite the bullet and use it again!
I am in the process of packing the box of goodies to go into the mail tomorrow!

I'm finally making my way around to some of the great blogs from the other felted bag swappers. I LOVE this bag! Of course, I'd have to learn to cable...
