Finally Some Pictures - The DSL Is Back
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, or maybe it's just the wrong wool but for whatever reason the bowls didn't come out quite the way I thought they would. For one thing they are larger than I was expecting and they are not stiff. I will try felting them again when I finish knitting the messenger bag and see what happens.
Meanwhile, I knitted up a pair of slippers and again they looked like they weren't going to felt well.
Surprise, surprise, they came out really well and actually fit my foot. Now I will make a pair for my sweetie and hope for the same result. These will be great in the winter when we get cold feet.
This is the messenger bag that I'm working on and it will be a while before it's done. It needs to be 20 inches by 20 inches before felting and then a flap of the same dimensions. I suspect the only knitting that will happen in the next few days will be on the drive up to the cottage and maybe on the drive back. We're having visitors for the weekend at "chez cabin" so not much knitting will happen.
For all my Canadian readers, Happy Canada Day on July 1st and for all my American buddies, Happy July 4th...
