Another Felted Bag

Here's a picture of the Marsupial Bag I made last week.

I altered the pattern according to Steph's suggestions; she posted them on her blog a few weeks ago (May 24th entry). Basically, you continue working the right twists all the way up the bag (including the handles). Because you bind off fewer stitches, the handle is shorter and sturdier. I'll definitely make more of these. The pattern was really easy and the finished bag is the perfect size to carry a sock project. I used a single strand of Lopi to knit mine and I'm very happy with the thickness of the finished bag. Thanks, Steph, for sharing your pattern alteration!!
