Winter Wonderland In April?????????????
ENOUGH ALREADY!!!! It's the end of April!!
On a brighter note, here is a photo of the felted button-hole bag from the recycled Lopi yarn. I may not have left it in the washing machine long enough as I recently read that you shouldn't be able to see the stitches if the item is fully felted, but I like the look and it's both sturdy & the right size to hold a couple skeins of yarn, the project in progress (PIP) and the latest book I'm reading. I like the feel of the handles in my hand. I have enough of the Lopi yarn left that I can make a larger one - maybe I'll felt that one a little more.
The yarn you see peeking out is in the process of becoming more hats for the K4 project. This is the 4th one since Thursday evening. I'm still frogging the earth-tones fair isle and it is a complete *pain* - some of the lengths of yarn are only one width of the piece. I'm getting a fair amount of the beige and the black yarns, but only a little of the other three colors. At least it was only 25¢ and I'm learning a valuable lesson - I passed on a similarly patterned sweater on Friday that was $2 because now I know that frogging one is more trouble than the yarn is worth at that price.
