Since I felted some of my early machine knitting experiments, I've been seeing little purses....And now, it's not just my mind's eye that's doing the seeing. I made this one using the 90mm purse frame kit. The rose is simply rough-cut circles of felted knitting, stacked on top of each other and stitched by machine, with the fancy-schmantzy "hand-stitching" stitch. (...I know. I'm lazy like that).
In other news, the lovely Karen alerted me to a yarn stash that was being given away in her neighbourhood - she even picked it up for me and delivered it!!!
I was so overcome with excitement when I saw a brim-full box of yarn, I immediately started bagging up my favourite colours and loading up the (potential-moth-egg exterminating) freezer. I only thought to take a photo when I ran out of space in the freezer.
Well, actually, I thought of the camera BEFORE I ate the ice-cream to make space for more yarn in there. (Then I ate the ice cream and forgot about the camera again).
I'm just a little bit jumping-up-and-down excited at the prospect of knitting my way through this lot. I'm planning on expanding the knitting machine repertoire to include Shapes Other Than Rectangles.
I daresay there'll be more felted wool purses made along the way.
