A Day On The Lake

Yesterday we got up real early and took the boat to Jenkinson Lake just a few miles from our home. It was my first time on the boat and we had a really nice time. John used his new downrigger and it worked because he caught a fish but we didn't get it in the boat.

Another Felted Wool Purse

Here is my latest creation. I took a knitting class last weekend at Sierra Knitting Company and I really learned a lot. I am working on another bag right now but it is really different than anything I have done before.

Felted Purses

I finally finished felting my first purse. This is what it turned out to look like.

Here is what I have been up to lately. Knitting and knitting. These felted purses are so much fun because you don't know what they will look like once you throw them in the washer with hot water. They are knitted out of wool and the hot water shrinks them down. Pretty cool.

This is the purse before felting...

and after. It turned out to be more of a bag than a purse. I have been using it to hold my latest knitting project.

This is the latest purse I have been working on.
