This is my first real knitting project, a knitting bag. Before this I had only ever made dishcloths. I'm really happy with how it turned out! I learned how to felt, how to knit in the round, a bit about bag construction, and how to make and attach a liner.

Here it is, big and floppy before felting:



And here it is again, post felting:



I lined the inside with matching satin (pink overload, I know!) with a snap at the top so that I can close the bag. On one side, there are two tall and narrow pockets for knitting needles and a snap pocket for stitch markers.



On the other side, I put three more pockets for random stuff:



It's the perfect size too hold a couple of balls of yarn and my knitting supplies. Right now it's full of everything I need for a pair of socks I'm working on.

personally I don't knit, but i think this came out very nicely. I would prefer to use it before it was felted, but that's just me. I like the inside as well. I love lots of pockets my bags. Most of the diaper bags I've been shopping through don't even have that many pockets! what the heck?

I love this! I've never attempting felting before. I read up on it a while ago and didn't try it out of fear that I would ruin what I'd just made in the washing machine lol. Nice job though!
