How BIG Is It??????????????
In order to get something big enough to put it in for the felting process (I almost wrecked my washing machine felting BBB by putting it in "nude"), I folded a twin sheet into quarters and basted two of the open sides closed. I'll use safety pins to close the open side once B5 is inside. The silk & wool basket will go into a pillow case and be felted at the same time.
In other news, the boxes for Matthew & Megan with their sweaters are sitting in the post office out in Crestline waiting to be picked up. The USPS tracking service is sort of neat - it costs 45Â¢ and doesn't provide the detail that UPS or FedEx does, but I received an email yesterday morning that the boxes had arrived. I added DD#1's email address to the notification so she knows that they're waiting.
On the other hand, I'm still waiting for notification that the other books from Amazon have been shipped. The one, Folk Shawls, was in Pontiac yesterday (more neat package tracking) and should show up today. Then the question becomes do I immediately pick out something to knit or be a good girl and wait for Xmas Eve & Santa??????
I've finished 4 hat & scarf sets for our K4 project and have a 5th set almost done. Knitting class is this afternoon, so I'll take everything along and get the ends run in. For now, I'm heading down to find safety pins and give B5 it's hot water bath. Wish me luck!
