Knit Together

Let one who wants to move and convince others, first be convinced and moved themselves. If a person speaks with genuine earnestness the thoughts, the emotion and the actual condition of their own heart, others will listen because we all are knit together.
--Thomas Carlyle

I'm feeling a surge of creativity, almost a compulsion, to finish things I began knitting. Below is a felted bag that I began last June. The handle was too long (instructions weren't clear and I'm still getting the hang of shrinkage percentages) so I modified it a bit. I want to make another!

    Just want to let you know....after seeing your bag today I've been consumed with knitting lust. I must make this bag!
    I'm 1/3 of the way into one color of Noro, I have one other waiting for the next strip and somewhere there is a purple/green color scheme I bought at Stitches that would rock in the bag.

    Sandy had a good chuckle out of my desires.

    So glad it inspired you! I'm pleased with the result and am sure yours will be marvelous.

    What fun!
