FO -New felted purse for ME!!!
I used some wool yarn that I had bought a few years ago- and I did knit it in the Entrelac pattern- but, the yarns muted more than I thought that they would- but, you can still see the different colors in person.

The photo doesn't show the true colors- they are much brighter in person- the purse handle has a variety of soft greens that match the purse exactly- despite what the photo shows.. darn the flash/light/rainy weather.

It's lovely. I actually like the muted colors. I've got to try entrelac -- is it very hard?

Slim.. it's very easy to do. I made a big shawl last year- is how I learned how. I just read the pattern and it really was easy.. it's like cables.. just looks hard.

:D

Thanks for the kind comments everyone-- I've been using it everyday- since, it got finished. It's a nice medium-sized purse. So, I wouldn't be able to put my water bottle and my wallet in it! :D Good thing it's not as hot, right?

Beautiful purse! And I love the dresser it is hanging from, too! The carvings on the drawer fronts are lovely.
