The felted bag project

Well I did make it home last night to begin the felted bag project. Obsession reigned. Size ten mm needles, some gorgeous roving and cheesey TV shows makes for a great evening. I got a lot of the knitting part done, approximately 2/3 of the way there. I should be ready to felt tomorrow. If I had been smart I would have thrown that damned protestant work ethic out the window and stayed home today to get the thing done, but then who would save the heritage world??????
I think it is going to be a great beginner project and maybe I should be writing down the steps hmmm. what a concept !!! keeping track of the steps as I go along so that I don't have to try and remember them when the kits are being made.... I should really look into that.;-). oh well maybe next time.
Kate is currently dying with kool aid and I think she needs to stop that and move on up to big girl dye. She makes me too hungry with all that fruity yarn. I have put the pounds on lately and lets face it knitting is not the most aerobic of activities at the best of times, add a little tease of candy smelling yarns and the eating begins with a passion.
I have been trying to post photos of the newest project but am technologically challenged, sigh.
I need to become more savvy. I am going to give it the old college try one more time before I heave the puter. Wish me luck
