Still, the book has some good ideas, but I would only recommend this to experienced colorworkers and felters.
When asked to do a book of hand knit handbags, I jumped at the opportunity, because I love bags-- they're practically indispensable! I've incorporated many different shapes and motifs that range from whimsical to haute couture, and have tried to make them functional, fashionable and fun.
You'll find an added element that is very exciting to me ... they're all ... felted. Felting adds whole new dimensions to the bags--texture . . . durability . . . cohesion . . . and distinctive style. I well know how nerve racking it can be to throw a lovingly-knit project into the uncharted territory of hot and soapy water and hope that the gods of the washing machine will be kind. Not to worry! If you follow my felting hints, it most always works. And the good news--a bag doesn't have to fit! So knit . . . felt . . . and be merry.

If you enjoy knitting totes, handbags,etc. this is a good book to own. A nice variety of styles and ideas even if you don't necessarily want a "felted" bag.Published on June 28, 2010 by Gerjer
