New Knitting Project

OK, today I finished knitting-felting project #2! And though I realized too late in the game that I shrunk it too much, so instead of being a bag you can carry a file folder and pad of paper in, it's a cute purse-type bag instead, I still am pleased as punch with it. (I know, a little humility would be a good thing here ...) Honestly, though, when things are this simple and yet turn out so impressive-looking, it's hard not to be even a teensy bit giddy.
First, done knitting but haven't washed it yet ...
And here, after washing not once but twice (my error) ...

And those of you who are particularly detail-oriented will recognize that my bag matches my slippers :-)

In the 2nd picture it looks more like your remote grew instead of your bag shrinking!

And please don't wear your slippers out with your matching bag. Maybe you can carry your purse around the house in the evenings.

Very talented, though! I was hopeless at knitting.
