I finally completed the knitting portion of my messenger bag. It looks great. I felted and blocked it yesterday morning. It’s still damp this morning, so I set it outside on the patio table where it will hopefully finish drying today.
Now I’m thingking about what to do with it from this point. I was going to duplicate stitch embroider the bag, but Betty, a friend in my a.m. knitting group brought in a beautuful book of felting projects, and now I’m inspired to needle felt it. Annlisa in my p.m. knitting group has encouraged me to think about keeping it for myself, and I think I will. It’s my first large project, and it is very pretty. It will be an inspiration to see it filled with my knitting projects in the coming years.
