Birthday clutch

It's been over a year since my last finished knit...too long! So for Joanne's birthday, I made her the felted clutch from One Skein.

Felted clutch
Pattern model next to actual bag

Pattern: The clutch you'll never give up from One Skein
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Bulky, wild violet colorway, almost 1 skein
Needles: US 15 bamboo circulars (16")

The bag didn't turn out quite so neatly as the model in the pattern photo, but it's still pretty cute. And it was a fairly quick knit...even for this slowpoke knitter! Here is the bag pre-felting...

Not seamed up yet

I definitely want to try another pattern in the book...of course, I still have a lot of other unfinished knits...sigh!

I've never had anything felt like it was supposed to. But that bag is super cute regardless. Bravo!
