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:
