Stop Sock Bag - Felted!

So, I needed practice felting something. I also just (this week) ran across my Stop Sock bag, which I needed to line, since the needles kept falling out of the bag - right through the fabric. "Or," I thought , "I could felt it..."

So I did.



It also happens to fit perfectly over a 24oz screw-top hole-for-straw-in-lid tumbler that I wasn't otherwise using... so that' a part of it now:

While the colowork did lead to bleed-through where the pattern isn't, the yarn itself (Paton's Classic Wool) actually didn't bleed at all. So, total win on that front! I really like the way it turned out.

Sock Knitalong

Doing a two-at-a-time sock knitalong at the store. Since I have copious yarn attached to each toe, I'm going to make lace stockings of bright and vibrant stripes. I think. (The alleged pattern, at this point, is Ann Marie: Pink Ribbon Stockings [Rav link]

I am a monster. Monsters, apparently, do not let relatives know that the phone-camera-thingy takes sound when it takes video.

Advent Calendar Scarf 2012 - DONE!

So, FINALLY finished my 2012 Advent Calender Scarf. (No, I have not finished 2011 yet.) Thanks to the wonders of the panoramic photo feature on the iPhone, here's the whole thing in one shot:

I gravity-blocked it over the shower-curtain rod:

All told, it was a fun project, even if I "forgot" to work on it (or blog about it) for a few years.

How it all began:
I picked the Yarn, Neigborhood Fiber Co.'s Maisonette
Was 2 days behind on Day 11

More Hats!

Finished more hats! The black & white is for Project Frontlines, the blue was *supposed* to be for my husband, but he thinks it's too big, so it's TOTALLY mine now.
