So, yesterday was my birthday, and I was busy all day long, but I couldn’t really tell you what I accomplished.  I did move a few things to my new sewing room (as the boys moved in to THEIR new bedroom the day before).  Double header at the baseball diamond.  Mucking around on the computer.

We had had a birthday celebration last week (supper at Red Lobster) and bought my birthday gift at Sam’s Club (Garmin nuvi 750).  I kind of wish I had had SOMETHING to unwrap, but I’m not really complaining.  My mom did bake me a batch of cookies in her brand-new oven, which I will share with the boys if they are nice to me.

Busy day on tap today:  a guy from a sign company is company today to give me a quote on a sign, plus a another sales rep will be here this afternoon.  Oh, and more baseball tonight.

I also handed my knitted bag to my Mom yesterday.  My washer is a front-loader, which means I can’t really felt projects in it.  Mom’s is top-loading, so I let her felt my bag for me.

As a reminder, you can scroll down to yesterday’s post to see it unfelted.  I think it shrank up by about half.  It’ll be several days before it is dry, and I still have to decide exactly how I’m going to attach the handle.  I had a plan, but I think I’m goign to change the plan.

The yarn I used is Lamb’s Pride Worsted Wool, which is actually a wool/mohair blend, so it’s got this cool halo-y effect from the mohair.  The picture, as I look at it right now, doesn’t really do it justice.  Once it is dry and the handle is attached, I’ll take more pics, in better light.

Carla cleverly noticed that it is the same colors as my blog header.  Imagine that!  LOL

I’m know I’m late getting into the knitting and felting game, but this was so much fun, I’m going to have to do more, I’m sure.

I’m expecting a big yarn order to arrive tomorrow, can’t wait to see what that will look like!!

Have a great day!
