Knit, Cascade pastazza and reg 220 wool, felting was done in the washing machine. The pattern was sort of a combination of a few- based mostly on a little flyer from Lion's- those freebie patterns by the yarn. Very easy, and Cascade just felts so beautifully; I love it. 

The only lame thing about some shades of pastazza is that I've noticed they competely changed colors after felting.  I had a cool purple yarn, and when I felted the bag, it became sort of a orange-brown-purple.  Not as cool, but ok.  The same thing happened w/ the turqoise on this purse, but not nearly as dramatic.

Thanks guys, I sure wish that I had taken pics of the MANY things I've given as gifts, and some of the stuff I sold at the local boutiques.... Now I must always remember to take pics!!! I have such a crappy digital camera, that it always turns out really bad.  And if I take photos of my paintings, they turn out really poor quality.
 There's a crocheted capelet that I did, but the pics turned out kinda lame, w/ no detail at all.  I really love the pattern I think I got it from the Interweave knits Shawls book-  it was the "Chanson en Crochet".  I will have to try and find a better pic- maybe of me wearing it or something.  But This is a knitting board, and I guess I'll be posting it on the crochet board.  I do both, obviously.  Thanks so much for the feedback!  Wouldn't it be so cool if we could earn a living knitting, and /or crocheting?!
