Me and the Girls

Here is a picture of me and the Thursday afternoon knitting group at my local yarn store.   We get together each week and have a blast.

Felted purse

This is a picture of a felted purse I did, called a "Lucy Bag"  It is done in Plymouth Outback.  I love how the colors melt together.  It is just done with one strand of wool, but felted super heavy!

First Felted bag

My first bag was pretty big.  Ended up giving it to my mom for a knitting bag.  I have the before and after picture.  I think felting is so much fun.  The freekin purse reaches to the ground before felting.  Its just so much fun to pull it out and have it transformed!  :-)

Cable scarf

I'm currently working on a double reverse cable.  Its 36 stitches across in a thick alpaca.  It has 3 cables on one side, and 2 on thet other.  Got pattern off Lionbrands.com I think.  Anyway, I like my man scarves thinner, maybe like 4-5 inches.  Anyone have any patterns or tips on places with a good man scarf that involves cables that might only be 4-5 inches thick?  Thanks for any help.  Love th egroup so far.
