Blueberry Gelato for Mother's Day
My very first felt!
It all started the evening of the yarn tasting. As I wandered around the Yarn Haven both Karen and Sarah mentioned how a certain yarn would be great for a felted purse. Having entered the shop without any solid project plans, I easily came to the conclusion that a purse would be a wonderful Mother's Day gift. Thus, I left that evening with two skeins of blue yarn and a pattern for a lovely little bag named after dessert!
I knitted all weekend and spent a late night at Sarah's finishing the straps and felting (thanks!!!) and "Voila!" a tasty little blueberry concoction was created!
Happiness all around!
Approx. 1 1/2 skeins of Kraemer Yarns Mauch Chunky in Iris
