Happy New Year!! Can you believe that it is 2007?? I can't! I spent the final weekend of 2006 knitting and felting up a storm! Thought I would share some of what I did with you.
I felted the orange bowl along with 3 others that I knit up over the weekend. They are a quick knit and come out so cute.
Cast on Ryan's pink and brown clogs and got those off of my 'to knit' list. They actually came out kind of fun!! Here they are pre-felted:
And then after a couple of cycles in my washing machine:
He hasn't tried them on yet because he is still at work. I hope he is still wanting pink and brown clogs......
I gave away my first 'Baby's Got A Brand New Big Bag' to a dear friend for Christmas and decided I wanted one for myself, so I got busy and cast on another. (when you click the link the pattern can be found to the left under bag patterns... having trouble with link)
Here it is pre-felted:
And again after a trip into the washing machine.....
It is large, but makes a GREAT book tote. I know that I am going to love this bag.
I knit it with Paton's wool double stranded on size 15 needles.
Also felted the purple purse using 'Kirstin's Bag' pattern. I found the perfect button at the knitting store in Galena and will put that on later tonight and it will be done. Not sure what to cast on next..... Maybe a hat!
Came home to just a dusting of snow on the ground. Still doesn't seem like January, but it does help a little!
Nikko and Sumo were happy to see us! Sumo agreed to try on Ryan's clogs, but once again, Nikko seems to find my knitting extremely boring???? Whatever.
Until next time....
