If this isn't just the cutest thing...!

One thing that we really love is when people bring things into the shop to show off after they're done knitting or crocheting. Ingrid, who tries to tell me she's a new knitter*, works just a few doors down (at Wild Birds Unlimited) and today she brought in something she finished over the weekend... the cutest little felted backpack EVER!

Her mother sent her this pattern, and she knitted it out of Malabrigo. Try to resist the cuteness... just try!

*For a new knitter, she's highly intuitive and had no problems modifying this pattern for an adult sized backpack into one that would fit her young daughter. So if you think you're "too new" to try something this brave, take heart! Just because you're new doesn't mean you can't be adventurous!
