This little bag I have sent to Silfert http://stitchtunes.blogspot.com/ for her little man. She had mentioned she was looking for a pattern for one...ages ago. Sooo I thought I'd knit one.
Pattern:-Little Penny Pouches by Sara Foster from Interweave Felt Special Issue 2008. I modified the pattern heavily to knit this.
I started with a base, and continued to the top.
Yarn:-1 skein of Noro Kureyon colour#184. (leftover from my Tasha shawl.) I really, really love the Noro colours.
What a quick easy knit. I used cord and a painted wooden ball to finish off the bag. It measures approximately 4 1/2" tall and the base is about 3 1/2" across.
I thought the felting took a long time, but then smaller things usually do and I did it by hand!
The necklaces I made for Sarah, one of the knitters I see most every week at the coffee shop.
Pattern:-Anjies knitted Bead Necklace. You can find this free pattern here
I decided to use small wooden beads instead of fiberfill.
These were a bit fiddly to work but the end result is so cute.
I still haven't finished Barbara's socks and the roses socks.
I would like to start something using my new handspun. I have a lot of plans but am only motivated to do this and that! Oh, well.
P.S. If you look at the necklace pic you can see the dust on the road. A car had just driven past, ah, the joys of living on a dirt road!
