First big knitting project
I'm working on making a handbag with a bit of fair isle print near the bottom. This is my first big knitting project and I'm only one strap away from being done!!


I'm working with wool yarn and thinking of semi-felting this bag so it holds together longer.

Nice work! I love the colors you've used, and you're knitting looks like it was done by a pro!

Please post another picture when you get it felted (if you do). I'd love to see it!

This looks good and it's a wonderful first project with lots of different techniques. You've done lovely work on the Fair Isle with none of the dreaded pucker in the knitting. Can't wait to see the finished bag!
