SPINACH AND PEAS


Another UFO crossed off the list. This bag has been hanging around since last August. I knit the bag out of a green Casacade wool intending to use the mohair that I made in John Pitblado's mohair spinning class as a knit overlay on the felt. Never happened as there was no inspiration and so there it sat for months like so many of my other projects. At Christmas I bought the felting needles (see purple hat) and last Sunday while enjoying the company at Francesca's started doodling with the mohair and there it was. Made the beads with the Cascade. Have stopped at this point trying to decide if I should add some glass beads but since I am happy with it at this point, may quit.

My pal Una is a master felter--check her out--and a great felting teacher. She has just completed the most wonderful blue shoes!

Now if I could just take better pictures.

Oh Theresa, the bag is beautiful! Can we put this in the booth at ASCH? I'm in love!

I’m in the process of doing some massive ring maintenance for the FiberArts Bloggers ring and I am contacting you because there’s a problem with your code. The code you have up is actually alright, except that the ring’s original home page (which your code links to) on the urbanspinner site is long gone. The new home page is:
http://unioncenterknits.typepad.com/fiber_arts_bloggers/
You’re welcome to either switch out just that one part of the code, or ask me for the basic default ring code instead.
Please feel free to contact me with any related questions/concerns. Once you have your code fixed up, if you want to send me a note I’d appreciate it, so I can check it out. Thanks!
Joni
