Felted Bag Exchange Contest.

I got interested in felting late last summer. I'd made a couple handbags/purses out of yarn and cotton yarn, and while reading a few patterns, I came across "felting." Being "new" to knitting, (Just since after Christmas in 2005) I decided I'd like to try something, but everything looked so complicated. I asked lots of questions on the yahoo groups, read patterns, and decided I'd combine what little knowledge I had then and make up my own pattern. Not only was it my first felted bag, it was my first time knitting in the round. Here is the finished product, my first felted bag. And the posts when I wrote when I worked on it is here. Now, I've come a long way, and know so much more, but never enough. I still like this bag, being my first. :-)
