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...

Nice fetching! I'll bet that will be a warm and cozy pair.
The bag is going to look great! Love those colors.

Thanks for posting the soup recipe below - it looks wonderful!

I'm thinkin' your new socks won't be done by next weekend, so if you have to hold off on finishing the tote, that's ok..... :-)

The bag will be great!
I love Sumo's new "legwarmers"!!!( I just made a pair of fingerless mitts for a 12yearold, and her sister came yesterday and asked for the pattern, she wanted to knit a pair for herself!)

Sumo needs another paw-warmer for the other side. He's a very patient model. LOL

The bag turned out great.

I love your bag and your wrist warmers. What size needle did you use?

danielle said...

oh my, that image of Sumo in the legwarmer is permanently imprinted on my memory-- that is a GREAT photo. what a good dog!!!

your fetching gloves came out so pretty... i love that pattern, but i like how it came out in your yarn better than mine, they look toastier!

The bag will be lovely. As will your socks from Sheri. I am knitting a pair in that exact yarn she is using and it is ever so yummy. You will have toasty warm toes for certain.
Sumo is such a sweetie.

Can't wait to see the bag all felted up! I know it's going to look great!

You should totally make leg warmers for Sumo!! All the other dogs in the neighbourhood will be jealous!
