Felted Goods

Posted in Needlework at 7:14 pm by royalempress

How did my secret pal know that I wanted to further experiment with felting?? I don’t know, but she was kind enough to send me this fabulous book:

It has a nice, big felted bag that I would love to try. I need a bag to carry my big text books around. I also like the rug. It will be a great little project for the front door of our condo. Or maybe the kitchen or bathroom. So many projects, so little time!

I haven’t been blogging much obviously since I’ve been looking for another job. I ended up staying at my current company but now I work in the tech department. I love how my new co-workers go from tech nerds to tech savvy chic. I’m learning so much that I feel smarter by the minute lol!

I’m off to have a good weekend. I hope you do the same!!

Knittin’ Pretty

SP Tuesday

Of course I have clothes on! I was wearing shorts since it was in the 80’s. Look at you! Thinking I was one of those naked knitters….hmmmm that may not be a bad idea. Then again, who would want a gift that’s been on someone else’s naked body. Unless you’re into that sort of thing. LOL! Anyway…

I’ve been knitting and job hunting and knitting some more. I’m currently in search of patterns for seat covers. I have to bar stools in my kitchen that my wonderful daughter managed to get dirty. They’re too the point where they need to be covored with something that’s washable. I thought about knitting covers or ever sewing something. If you know of any ideas, please let me know.

Ok, it’s time for bed. I’m beat! Good night!

I’m currently working on a little something for a special someone. I can’t say because the person might catch on if they read this. So here’s the beginning picture for now:

If you live on knitty like I do, then you’ll probably figure it out. I just had to post it because I’m excited (I get easily excited over projects that look good). I just loooooooove Elsbeth Lavold’s Silky Tweed. Almost as much as I do Noro…ok wait..that might be pushing it LOL!

Ok, that’s enough for now. Ciao!
