You Can Actually Make This In Two Hours
Several months ago, Laurie Perry (Crazy Aunt Purl) published the hilarious book DRUNK, DIVORCED AND COVERED IN HAT HAIR. I read her blog fairly regularly, but hadn't read the book until the other day.
The book includes some simple knitting paterns for beginners. There's one for a Felted Bracelet Bag (pattern free on her website if you click on this link). I thought it was really cute and will be perfect to hang on my wrist when I'm running quick errands to take just my ID, keys, a lipstick and cell phone. It sure beats dragging my big purse on quick jaunts.
This is the one I knit - started it this morning while watching the tribute shows on Tim Russert, and just two hours later, the bag was done, including seaming up the sides and felting it. What a fun project! Just what I needed - a mindless, fun, easy and cute quick fix.
I liked it so much that I think I'm going to make at least one more. Yay! Fun and quick and cute is good right now. (I also think these would make excellent gifts).
