Inishturk Sweater and FO-Twilight "Wall Blanket"
Here is a "Felted Bag" I made for my sister. (Front and back.) I ended up not felting it because I didn't use the right yarn and I was nervous it would get messed up. It's Way too big because I used Double Knitting (not apart of the pattern) and added a few sts to accommodate the wording. So I stopped halfway and bound off. When she saw it "still in progress" she said it would look good on the wall so I'm thinking I might keep the handle so she can just put it up. And she's a huge fan of Twilight so I took all the couples names and put them on there.

I'm currently making the Inishturk Sweater from Lion Brand. I'll post up pictures when I'm a little further along.

Thanks! To tell you the truth, this was the first time I've ever done it. I just started knitting 2 months ago...it's so fun! Double knitting was definitely interesting!

Thanks! This has been such a long project. Between finding the lettering that I wanted to charting it out and encorperating it into the pattern. I'm happy to have finished it.
