Comments: For Project Spectrum this year, my goals were to knit up some of my sock yarn and to do a beaded knitting project for each color grouping, so this is my beaded project for April and May. I bought the kit at Yarnover last year. It was a pretty quick knit, but it took me a while to throw it in the washer to felt and then to sit down and sew in the zipper. I actually sewed the zipper in twice because it looked horrendous the first time. This time isn't perfect, but it's ok. Here's how the bag looked pre-felting:

and the finished project:

I have enough yarn left over to knit another bag, so I'll probably do it again one of these days.
