Felt Like Felting

I have made my first felted item and I love it! It's also the first purse I've ever knitted and the first time I've created my own design. Happy dance! I made it with Knit Pick's Wool of the Andes. At just $1.99 a ball, this yarn is amazing. I knitted this single stranded with #8 needles and it is gorgeous. I worked with some wool over the weekend that was about 3 times the price and had to be knitted double stranded and still didn't felt as well as this.

I love it, and can't relate. I'd be your perfect ball roller, snack maker and booze drinker while you knit. I think I'm a bit too ADD for the knitting. However, I do like to walk in the yarn store and rub on skeins of exotics. Baby steps!
