I finished my Lucy bag in Malabrigo (Stonechat colorway).

Overall, I'm happy with it, but I wish I'd made the handle a bit longer. Oh well, live and learn! If anyone is thinking of making one of these in Malabrigo -- let me tell you that the Mmmmmmmm will shrink a lot during the felting process. It makes a wonderful, sturdy bag, but mine ended up quite a bit smaller than I expected!

More details are on my blog.

That is one beautiful bag I would be so proud to have it on my arm.

Think I need to learn this felting thing. It really is stunning and I love the colours.

It is lovely.....especially like the colorway......

I have found that straight knitting (not in the round) gets much shorter than I would expect so I have learned to add a little bit of length to some measurements so that I will have the bag, strap, handle etc. long enough for me.
