i heart lily allen

i purchased alright, still from itunes yesterday and have been listening to it nonstop ever since. such happy addictive pop.

anyway, you're probably here for the knitting.
Pink bag prefelting
i started out making a variation of the sophie bag from magknits, but i lost my instructions halfway through knitting the base, and i ended up doing a different number of rows, so i guess i can say that i was just winging it all the way on this one.
Pink bag postfelting
i used knitpicks wool of the andes in tulip, 2 strands held together on #13 denise circs, and ran it through 2 wash cycles.

i ordered some magnetic snaps from ebay. now i just need to do the lining and attach the handles. and find a button.

i've ever so slowly been working on the capecho and the anthropologie capelet. i'm kind of losing my knitting mojo. i want to make a larger felted bag, but i'm trying to concentrate on finishing at least one more thing before i start something new.

  2. The difference between the two is crazy, isn't it? I love that colour though. Ah, man! You've made me want to get all purple and felty.

  3. What a cute little bag! And Wool of the Andes felts amazingly, I had no idea. This may be one of those you need more than just one patterns.

  4. What a cute bag, I think I like it better than the original its based on. Sometimes you need to take a break from the knitting to come back refreshed. Then again, maybe you just need to find the right project and yarn to get the mojo back.
