Finished Projects, New Project

So I really would have updated sooner, but...I got strep throat. Yar. Let me tell you it hurts WAY more than when I was a kid and is affecting my back (which can be pretty bad every now and then thanks to a car accident) which is "the suck".

Anywho So I completed my bag in a weeks time (I'm fast at anything if I enjoy it) and here it is pre-felting: Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

That's my mom holding it up. Here's post-felting:Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I knew it would shrink but...Wowza! However I have a good teacher and the pattern accommodated for shrinkage so it's still very large (or large enough to hold a few projects). It's just waiting to completely dry then on with the handles.

As for my new project (and 3rd ever-eek):Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I haven't done much because, you know...Strep Throat. I can get one or two rows done then I have to rest. It's annoying the heck out of me. I don't care much for this project because the yarn I'm using is "Just Bamboo" so it's all ribbon-y. Which means the dang thing curls and curls and twists on itself and drives me nuts. I'm obsessive enough that I have to stop and un-wind the thing...Alot. I'm never using ribbon-y yarn again. Harumph. Well I'm off to knit another row before having to rest again. :)
