The Sophie Bag is felted! Sorry about the dark picture, but the bag turned out great! I think it's the best finished felted item I've ever made. It's stuffed and drying on the back door. The double I-cord handle is just perfect. Hopefully it will be dry in a day or two. I'll need the perfect button for on the front.
I also found a pattern for this tiny bag from the Keyboard Biologist. It's aiming to be a camera bag for the 4th grade field trip to Harrisburg. It's a great pattern. The bag has a knit in partition. I think I'm going to play with the proportions to work out a bag for cell phone/sunglasses. I did change the strap style on the bag to a I-cord. DD wants to wear it over and across the shoulder.
In other news, Gracie is coming along nicely. I've calculated that I'll need a total of 7 repeats of the pattern for the proper length. I'm almost done with the second repeat - one more pattern row and two rows of plain knitting to go.
