New Projects

OK, I'm envious. Everybody has been making felted purses lately but me. Making the felted bowls revived my interest in felted items. Now I need to start a purse. I have the yarn for the Spring Fling. Why am I hesitating? Maybe it's because I saw how lovely Linda's new bag is and THAT is what I want next. Or the companion bag Roni made. OK, I admit it - I want both. If I can get Linda to help me I will make that one with some of the new yarn I have coming which I mostly bought for felted bowls. I admit, there were a couple colors I bought 2 skeins of so that would work for a purse. And if not, oh well, back to KnitPiks for more shopping!

I am a yarn addict. Oh wait... I hear everyone in my KC is a yarn addict.

I have a friend whose granddaughter is raising lambs. I already asked her to save us the wool. :) I told her we'd send it off somewhere to get cleaned. So now it'll be up to Brooke to help us with this project if Dani (the granddaughter) is willing to let us have the wool.

Later this month the KC is headed to Dixon for a wool festival.

Nah, we're not addicted, are we? hehehehehe

    Good to see you today my friend. I loved Linda's purse too. (Do we have purse envy??). I am now a sheep stalker - great, hu? I'll go sneaking around ranches and farms shearing sheep - little 4-H kids will wake up to find their sheep naked!! Ohh, but the fine wool yarn we will have!!
