I don’t know how all you knitting bloggers out there do it. The project below took me months – months to finish and it’s only going to get one, one measley post. I mean, if I’m working on a quilt, I might be able to squeeze 2 posts out of it, but for a project that took this long, I really should be able to do at least 5, but alas, just one…
Here is the before shot of the wool felted purse that I knit:

Here is the after shot:
Finished dimensions: 12″x11″
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Fern and Evergreen
I really like how it turned out (little dirt specks and all). I sewed a liner on the inside, complete with a pocket using fabric that Quenna bought when she went shopping for me (thanks, Quenna!). I love it when there’s fabric in my stash that is a nice match.
Here is the book I got the pattern out of:
I think I may be the world’s slowest knitter. I like it that the needles are portable, but I am at a time in my life when my hands are rarely idle. And am I too old to be starting a new hobby? How do you knitters ever get anything done?
