Finished Rowan Bag

I finally finished this sample for Knitting Etc, but forgot to post about it.

The yarn is Rowan Silk Wool, a DK weight blend. The pattern is from the Rowan Silk Wool book. There are really gorgeous things in the booklet. I love the cover turtleneck with its graceful center cable, for example.

I didn't line the bag since it was destined to be a shop sample and not actually used. But I think if I were to make the bag for myself, I would definitely line it. The wool isn't felted and so it's not really sturdy on its own.

Speaking of felted bags, I just finished my first felted project. Unfortunately, I can't show pictures yet because it's a design project for One Planet Yarn & Fiber, but they seem to have a quick turnaround time for releasing patterns (I just sent them the bag today) and so I hope to be able to post pictures of it really soon!

But now that I've had a taste of felting, I can feel myself getting obsessed. I started this Lucy Bag yesterday with a lovely shade of Cascade Heathers 220. It's hard to tell from the photo, but the yarn is a deep brown color with lovely, subtle reddish, orangish, greenish flecks:

It might need some needlepoint fabric as stiffener too, then a lining. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems like it might be time now :) There are great instructions on the Noni bag website for her felted bags. What did you do for the bag you just made with the fair isle hexagons?

Hi Connie, The bag came out great! I love how your working the bottom of that Lucy bag too, much nicer than a round garter stitch one I was thinking of using in one of mine. Loved seeing the backdrop of your handbag too! I don't think I've ever seen one of my designs on the web or in a blog before :) Thanks!

The Bag looks GREAT and so stylish. Felting is a lot of fun--It feels like magic

I love the look of that bag, but I agree with you - generally knitted bags are too floppy to use unless they're sturdily reinforced!
