My knitted and felted purse is done....waaay later than I thought...

I took pictures along the way of this knitting project.  I have several purses like this in different colors, and they all turn out unique even though the pattern is the same.  They are knitted on round needles, very simple really, with three strands of yarn.  This last purse I washed and washed, and it didn't want to felt, and then it almost felted too much.  Very tricky process that you have to watch like a hawk.  I love the purple/blue/green/burgundy color scheme.  It was to have been a Christmas present...  I did give away some polymer clay mosaic items as part of my handmade Christmas this year.  They were well received.

I didn't see anything like it any of your shops though. I was going to ask if you might consider a trade? Or custome request?

Beautiful, Maria. I love the texture of knitting and the color is gorgeous. I was at Webster Flea Market on Monday and passed Brooksville. It's a little ways from St. Pete! Next time I'll stop into your shop.
