2 new purses

Here are the two purses I finished. Used Cascade and Noro Silk Garden and one with Plymouth Outback.

2 new purses

OK, got the tattoo last Wednesday. I love it. Still sore. Took 3 1/2 hours, but I love the results. Will post a pic once it heals. Got after my knitting on Sunday. Finished two purses. I've never poked a hole thru the purse after felting before. It was kinda scary! But I like the end result. Also finished my first double reverse cable scarf. Been workin on that thing for like a month! Decided I had too many projects 1/2 way done and needed to get the majority finished up.

the joy of socks

Well I just got back from SF Stompede dance convention with the ever wonderful Steve, aka Bug or "BUG-WUG" {dodgingwindshields.com) my friend who was one of the ASL interpreters. Did I hand off my Sockwars socks to my victim who lived there? Of course not! I brought them back up to Portland with me and just stuck them in the mail. When I got home, I found out that I had been "Killed" by my NY assasin, and that her socks looked NOTHING like mine. Of course, I have to look at the pattern and figure out if I did something wrong. Although the socks I received have some obvious "BURPS" in the pattern, I love them. Very cool. I knit some obnoxiously colorful socks using the same pattern but taller and in a K3 P3 rib. Got one full sock done on the trip down and back (1 1/2hrs each way=3 hours total) much to the amazement of the flight crew and fellow passengers... I used to HATE FLYING, and now it is, OH BOY! Guilt free knitting time! "Look at me... I am so much more productive than you...playing solitaire on your laptop!"
