Wendy Tote

 I am joining Kristine at for "Work In Progress Wednesday" with the purse I am currently knitting. After finishing the quick crochet hat , I moved on to the "Wendy Tote".

 So here I am in 90+ degree weather drawn to creating felted bags!! And, that's what I am doing in the AC and with a fan running. The purple is the beautiful Cascade Heathers and has gorgeous strands of blue  twisted with the purple. The black is Cascade 220. I may be switching to the dark blue when I use all of the black. Given the size of this bag, I would call it a purse rather than a tote. The free pattern is available at This is an easy, cute pattern. I haven't decided whether I will add the flowers to the bag. If I do, I think I'll make it removable. It depends on how anxious I am to felt and finish!

What on you making on this hot summer day?

Oooh I love Cascade! Sometimes I feel like I keep them in business! I love the colors in your tote ... I hope you like knitting with it as much as I do!
