Silver was mentioning her lack of enthusiasm for felted bags; maybe I'll feel the same way, but since I haven't tried yet, who's to know? I looked at the Black Sheep site and saw the Heidi Tote which I thought was adorable AND sturdy. SO, with PayPal in hand, I bought a pattern. Looking forward to knitting (and felting) it up.

Wish me luck!

BTW, anyone knit this yet?

i haven't done that one but i did the sophie and liked it a lot. (btw don't pay for it...there are stores out there charging for it but it is a free one out online!) I am not sure that i will find a bag that i will end up using after i knit it because most bags are too small for me to use but i reeeeeeeeally like knitting them and my friends and family like rcving them so it is worth it for me! I think lining them makes them stronger AND you can make them even cute with fun fabric lining!

brenda, do you mean that the Sophie bag is free on line somewhere?

rebecca, not sure yet. Have to look through my stash and see if I have anything that will work (I don't own any Cascade so I have to research what a sub can be for that yarn). Of course, I really just wanna buy some brand new yarn! Ooops!

:D

it was the first project i did that required me to pick up stitches.....well actually no it wasn't but the first one i did was soooooo narrow that i couldn't figure out how to knit it after i picked up the stitches so i frogged and made sophie instead! :D easy peasy except for that I-cord that i can't seem to master!
