Lucy Bag :: Felted

Lucy Bag
Pattern: Lucy, Two Old Bags

This has long been one of the most popular felted bag patterns at the shop and although several friends of mine had knit them over the years, I wasn't especially inspired until this Cascade 220 color came in to the shop:

Cascade 220 Birch Heather
Cascade 220, Birch Heather

I love this golden color with bits of red in it. I've since seen it knit here and here and it's confirmed my hopeless attraction to all the Cascade 220 Heathers. I wasn't sure that I could (or would) wear a garment in this color, but knitting a bag was a great opportunity to experience it.

Thank you all so much for the comments you've left on my previous entries about my new scarf patterns, the sheep afghan we knit for Shelley, my sister's new blog, and the entry about my lost uncle. You all are very kind and generous and I appreciate your sticking with me while I went through a bit of a lull in posting blog entries. Lots of stuff was going on behind the scenes -- some knitting-related, some not -- and it's kept me away more than I'd like. But I love blogging and sharing with you and I'm looking forward to revealing a lot of fun projects in the days and weeks ahead.

What's been up with you? What are you knitting? What are you reading?

Have you read "How knitting a love song?" I just finished it, very nice history in the wonderful atmosphere of yarn...

I love your bag... I love "bags"!
...and i'm knitting : http://unbrindanslevent.blogspot.com/2009/06/continental.html
in fact, it stayed all winter in the bag, because it's more a spring cardi, with the good weather coming back, time to get through it. Happy Easters!

I love the bag and the color!

Yes its a lovely colour, I agree cascade 220 heaters are the cats pyjamas:) Have a great Easter!

you're so right...great color! nicely done!

Love, love, love the heathery colour and those pretty flecks that give it more depth. You have an eye for colour.

Hope you are enjoying Easter. Your bag looks great, a perfect mustardy yellow.

Oh that color is just perfect! Beautiful bag!

Great bag! I've hesitated to try a felted project now that I have a front-load washer.

I just started swatching for a sweater I'm designing for myself in Cascade 220 heathers in a midnight blue. I love that yarn too!

I've just finished reading Crow Planet, which I think you might like. I'll send you a Goodreads recommendation.

Love the Lucy Bag. I made several of them a while back for Sarah. They are so much fun.

I am trying to knit the Simply Garter vest from Folk Vests. The yarn I have does not get gauge, so I am redoing all the numbers. I'm not sure if it is going to work out or not.

Just finished reading Heart and Soul by Meave Binchy. It was not my usual read, but I did enjoy it.

Love this bag! Will have to get the pattern next time I am in Twisted Yarns!!

Wow! You were right to choose that color. Fabulous bag!
