We interrupt this change purse for....

A new washrag! This is a petal dishcloth pattern that I found on the wonderful internet here. My mother and I saw it and just had to make one QUICK! This one is mine.

My mother of course, had made hers into a fancy flower! It's the petal dishcloth on the bottom with a mason dixon warshrag inside. It's so cute. She also made a quickie crochet chain to tie it all together. Come on ??!!! Don't you want one.

Change Purse

Where the heck have you been? So much has been going on since we got back from Daytona. Knittingwise and other. I'm finished up with my bag but need to stitch it up and make the handle...then it will be ready for felting. My friend Mandy who I am making the bag with needs to catch up so I've put that down for now until we are at the same point. 225 rows takes a long time!
So I'm back in Florida because my mom has not been feeling well so I've come to knit with her and make her feel better. Last night and today I made this change purse. It's in the washing maching right now getting felted. I got the simple pattern on line but I think the flap part is a little small. We'll see how it comes out. I made this with some needlepoint wool that my dh's grandmother gave me. Since I don't needlepoint, I thought I would try to make something different with it. The after pictures will come later.
