Toasty Toes....

Yes, I am hoping to have toasty toes by November 1st... That is my goal for having my felted clogs completed. Heidi from Fiber and Photography has agreed to join me in knitting up these clogs by November 1st!! I started my first one last night, and have made some progress! (There are a few errors on it, but I am banking on the felting process to cover them up!!) The pattern takes tremendous concentration. If the phone rings or someones asks a question I am in trouble.....

I can't wait to wear them, tho. They already feel yummy!!


Speaking of yummy, I am making curry for dinner. It is a nice cool fall day and it just calls for a steaming bowl of curry over rice. Don't really have a recipe, but can show you the box I buy at the Oriental store.
As you can see, we like it HOT!!

























Felted my ballband bag and am very happy with how it came out! I purchased a used leather purse at Goodwill (for $1.25) and will add the straps to this bag and use it for a book bag. I can't wait to cast on my next one. I think I will do gray with hot pink and green.











I have joined a Dishcloth KAL where twice a month we knit a dishcloth where they send you 7-8 lines of the pattern a day. It is kind of fun. I think I know what this pattern is going to be, but you are not suppose to guess I guess until the very end! See if you can figure it out from the picture.
(It's kind of hard to see with the white...)







Thought you would enjoy meeting one of the two barn cats from next door. They are quite entertaining to watch. They love to sleep in a variety of locations... One of their favorites is the llamas' grain bins!! I think the llamas are smart enough not to mistake him for food!







Speaking of llamas, the little one is doing quite well. One of the girls who was there when she was born sent me this sweet picture taken shortly after the birth. I thought I would share it with you. A mother's love is universal! It is nice when a little girl is born because you can spend a little more time cuddling and loving on her than with a little boy llama. Too much cuddling on a little boy can cause BMS.. Berserk Male Syndrome. It's true. I am not making this up. Not sure if llamas are the only species known to have it.......








Goodbye for now from Willow Way.....

Yay, clogs! Those are going to be great. I love that felting (fulling-whatever) covers up little mess-ups. Cute new baby. That BMS sounds weird. I wonder why it only happens to male llamas?

Janice, I'd better put these bags I'm knitting down and get moving on my clogs....I have to catch up to you!!

Yes, Heidi, the first one with toasty toes wins!!
