I should have known. That in life, once I learned to knit, and learned the beneficial attributes of wool yarn, that I would fall desperately in love with felting. Although, I do tend to never actually finish the felt items, but that is beside the point. See I should have known when my family name is Felt. Had I realized this earlier in life, I would have been knitting and felting at age 6, and I’d be a lot farther along in utilizing my stash.
The actual point in this is that I took a break from the sleeves for “Gathering Intentions” and started yesterday, with my foggy brain, the Diamond Mitered Square Bag in the Interweave Felt magazine. Afterall it has my maiden name written in bold letters across the front, it had to be purchased.
I’m using up bits of Casecade 220 that I no longer have enough of for anything substantial, but have plenty to knit a purse by using scraps and pieces. It may turn out to be a horrendously ugly purse, but I’ll use it with pride, because I made it. And afterall, it’ll be a one of a kind.
I haven’t taken any pictures recently of my knitting, but I will eventually. I’m out of habit from my blogging haitus.
However, there are always pictures of the boys. As you can see Abner is still totally in love with playing soccer. Django, we recently discovered, also likes playing soccer, but not so aggressively as Abner. He play for a few minutes, then lays down and takes a nap. Abner would play until he quite literally collapsed and died. Fortunately cooler weather is on the horizon, and so Abner will be able to play soccer all he wants soon.
Now I think I’ll go knit on my purse. My brain can’t handle cables today.
