The Wild Orchid

Twilight loved my new purse and she asked me if I could please knit her up something outrageous for her trip to NYC that she took on Oct. 1st. I, of course, agreed in a heartbeat!! So she ordered the yarn online in the colors she liked and had it delivered to me. When it came, I went through my stash and pulled out the complimentary yarns. Here's what happened!!
Her only request was that it have a closure type flap that mine didn't have. This is the pre-felted view.

And here is the finished purse!!

I worked hard on really blending color, which is so much easier to do when you're handfelting using roving. You can get great blends with the carders, and other techniques. So my goal was to do that through the knitting.

I loved the results and chalk this one up to a success!!! Twilight loves it!! She says she's getting great feedback everywhere she goes!
