Just a couple of finished felties....
I also whipped up a purse as a Christmas gift for Isaac's cousin. No pattern. I just did it off the top of my head. It has a slight basis in the Sophie bag (as far as knitting in the round & using decreases for shaping) but I just cast on & knit til it looked good.
I'm going to do some embroidery on the flap to give it a little extra cuteness.
In the knitting queue there are one more purse & pair of fuzzy feet and then I am going to indulge myself with a project just for me. Using her great powers of mind control Yahaira has convinced me (like it took any convincing) to knit up a modified version of the scalloped bag from Handknit holidays. This book has some really great patterns & the scalloped bag is one of my favorites! Hopefully I will finish up my Christmas knits this week so I can start on it.
Other exciting news this week- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire opens! YAH!! We will be in Jax on Friday night for the big cadets reunion so we won't get to see it then. I guess we will just have to go to the midnight screening on Thursday. I know it's dorky but is it really any worse than when we went for all 3 LOTR movies or the other 3 HP movies? Probably not!
Oh & big shopping tip!! Threadless is having a $10.00 t-shirt sale. I bought 10 shirts yesterday (as Chirstmas/Hanukkah gifts thank you)! It's a really great deal & all their girly shirts are printed on American Apparel shirts which are made in the USA & sweatshop free. So you can get very cool shirts, have the best gifts, be the envy of all your friends & support fair labor!! It's a win-win situation!!
but at least I'm perfecting mind control muahahaha
why did you have to link to those shirts?! now I have to decide which ones to get
I used Cascade 220 in bluebell (although it does bear a striking resemblance to the smurfs Angela).
Karin, they are like really thick socks. The felting makes them sturdy like slippers but I would compare them more to slipper socks (yeah, I know it's a cop-out).
Awww Yahaira! Sorry about the link to the shirts! At least if you get overwhelmed by the christmas knitting you can just buy everyone shirts!! Just kidding! I know your gifts will turn out beautifully!!
and thanks SO MUCH for the threadless link. i just picked up a bunch of gifts! yay me! (i'm such a dork.)
