back to my needles

Hi Guys,
after weeks creating my new yarn store www.handpaintedknittingyarns.com
I am back to heavily knitting.
Just finished a purse from my yarn, which I felted into a nice tough fabric. Need to sew the sides and add the handle. It is a nice one evening job.

Need First Project Suggestion

Hi, Gentlemen. I just finished a beginning knitting class (3-2 hour classes). Now, I get to do my first project. The teacher suggested that we not start with a scarf or at least if we do then do a scarf from a pattern. I would appreciate any suggestions!

latest projects

Just finished a purse from blacksheepbags. I think its a Booga Bag. Did the Icord handle last night. So right now, I have two purses, and two pairs of clogs to felt. I just haven't been in the felting mood. I am also going to try to felt them at my office in the top loader we have. I'll study and felt at the same time! :-) I think I need to whip out like 3 more pairs of clogs, and about 8 purses before Christmas! Wish me luck!

Another Use for Clogs??

Our 15 year old Blue Burmese kitten, "Little Dorritt", has taken up residence on our clog collection. She has spent the last week sleeping on them and gently pushing them out of shape. Fortunatley it has been over 30 deg C here for the last two days and we have had no need for warm footwear.
