Update in knitterly news


first off, guess who came to my store last week? that's right, the Yarn Harlot! Check out her blog entry about her visit here. you can actually see some pictures of me there too because i got to sit in the front row at her lecture.

i think i mentioned in an earlier post that i knitted some things for tyler's mom's birthday on the 4th so here is a picture of those dealies. these are just knit with some sugar 'n cream cheapie stuff from wal*mart on US #7s. one is just your basic dishcloth pattern and the other is a slip stitch pattern. his mom said she liked them.

i also knitted and felted a purse. it's a fiber trends "gelato bag" pattern. i used one strand noro kureyon and one strand mohair held together.

i didn't felt it very much... i might felt it more so it'll shrink up a little more. but look! my hair shrank in the felting process! actually i just got it cut between pictures.

ALSO! i knitted a Kitty Pi with Cascade 220 on US #15s. the jax-boy is sleeping in it right now. :) ahhh... i'm glad someone appreciates my knitted gifts. :)

before felting:


that's it! work is good although i worked ALL WEEK last week! but that means more money!! and i need the money.
