Over the holidays, I made a simple knitting project for a felted purse. My aunt in Sweden has sheep and a wool/spinning/coloring business and she showed me how to do needle-felting one time when I was visiting. She also gave me a few bags of colored wool to do my own felting. I wanted to try to knit something and found this cute pattern online. I found some felting yarn at the store, and started knitting. It took almost no time at all to knit, and felting it was even faster. I threw it in the washing machine, hot water, a little detergent and a pair of jeans. It was done in about 5-7 minutes. Kinda cute, isn't it?
When I took the picture, I used a wine bottle to show the shape...and I suppose it could be used as a wine bottle giveaway bag as well! :-) Next I'm going to embellish it with some needlefelting and maybe a few beads. Then the best part - give it away and watch a good friend light up with a smile! :-)
We had some snow and ice come down last night so I leave you with this picture of Kane running around in the backyard. He always gets extra energetic when it gets cold. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
