Felted, shaved lightly, and finished! This is the third time I've used the My Little Companion pattern - it just plain knits up and felts great! This one ended up about 6 1/4 inches tall (without the handles) and 8 1/2 inches wide at the base - such a practical size. Christine keeps score for the church league basketball that my hubby plays on every Monday night. I don't know her very well but have seen her and talked with her a couple of times when I went along to watch the guys play. She was really interested in another bag I was knitting at the time. When dear hubby suggested that it would be nice if I could make her a bag, the stash came to the rescue. I just happened to have these yarns in my cupboard that would be perfect for her bag! Thank you for your dedication to the weekly basketball, Christine - hope you enjoy this little surprise!
This is Christine's Bag before felting. I used Paton's Classic Wool in a denim blue heathery shade and Noro Kureyon in a light pastel colorway with colors from turquoise to pink to green and cream. I'm happy with how the color blended, but yet the Noro added some life to the bag.
