Amanda's Squatty Sidekick
Last Saturday I drove 7 hours, round trip, for a wedding shower for my cousin. Mom, Grandma, my niece and my Aunt (Mother of the Bride) were all in the car so it was a great chance to catch up and have some time away. I cast on this cute little felted purse soon after leaving my house, and had all but the button flap done when I arrived back home. I finished the button flap one day last week and found a button at the LYS on Friday. Now.... to find the chance to go see if Mom will let me felt it in her top loading washer.
The yarn is the gorgeous royal blue Lamb's Pride from Denise's shopping trip for me (1.5 skeins). The pattern is by Amanda Berka and is available from Knitting Daily by Interweave Press.
The original bag is suppose to be 4.5 inches high, 10 inches long and 2 inches wide with a 14 inch handle. I made the bag bottom twice as many stitches wide so I'm hoping it's more like 4 inches wide.
