"F" is for felting and fun!!!! This is my first buttonhole bag, and my first felting project. Things were a bit apprehensive there for a while, until I remembered that felting is shrinking, so that huge loose blobby thing would probably become something a bit neater looking. And it did! I used two strands of Cascade 220 on size 13's - I think I could almost promise you'll get a whole bag out of just one skein. The darker color doesn't show well in this pic, but it's actually a "mallard green" heather. I did felt this bag twice, because I wanted to know what would happen, mostly. I think once was enough...I can't prove it wasn't this way after the first time, but it did end up with the increase bump on the left being at a different height than the increase bump on the right. I wonder if I made a mistake, or if the felting just made that happen? Otherwise, it's a great bag, and I even like the size. I might like my next one a little smaller, but I'm not entirely certain how to make that happen. There's plenty more Cascade left to find out!
For the heck of it, here's a pic of a couple Noro Log Cabin squares for the blanket I'm working on. I tried to post these a while ago, and Blogger just wouldn't have it. Now I've got four done, and several more skeins in the stash. These are about 9 in. sq.
Also working on a Moderne blanket in Silky Wool, but there's not enough of it to post. AND I'm making one of those cool circle-of-fun rugs out of SNC. It's progressing quickly, but I'm gonna make myself finish the Fetching Hand warmers from Knitty tomorrow. We're moving to Indy in just a couple weeks, and then I have to return to school after a long year off...while I'm glad to be going back, between moving - which I am still avoiding packing for - and classes and work, I can just feel my knitting time running out!
