Ready to Felt..
My bag is knit and ready to felt. I am so excited to see how this turns out. I am loving the colors. I can see myself carrying this bag everywhere! Now I need to get busy and finish the circle tote I am making for my friend Sheri. I'm making her a tote; she's making me a pair of socks. I just saw on her blog that she has one of the socks done already. I have half the tote done, so maybe I can get it finished and felted before I see her next weekend. (We are taking an exciting trip together.. stay tuned for more details!!)
I watched my Sunday football yesterday and finally cast on and finished one of the Fetching fingerless gloves. I made it with my Baby Alpaca Twist. It is so incredibly soft and warm. I had to frog the first one, as I realized it was going to be too tight. (I have large hands). I cast on 50 instead of 45 stitches the next time and they fit great!! I need to quickly do #2 so I can wear them! It's starting to get chilly around here!
I think if leg warmers ever come in for dogs, that these would work great! (Minus the thumb opening, of course!) Here is Sumo right after a visit to his Vet. He needs to lose 5 pounds and have his teeth cleaned, but other than that he's in great shape!! He's now up to walking over a mile and a half with me and still has energy to burn when we get home! Will maybe go up to 2 miles pretty soon. The walks are such a highlight for him!!
Well, short post. Thanks for the great comments last time!! I LOVED all the new 'Mr Wonderful' comments you guys had!!
Until Next Time...
