I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

In the bag

I finally snapped to it and finished my two felted purses. One will be a gift and the other is shop bound. I haven't decided which is which yet.

Felted purses

The first one is the mistake that I tried to fix. It felted too long. So I ripped out the bottom stitches and put in a zipper. I put in a pretty black liner that is sewn across the middle. Fold it in half and now I have a purse with two separate openings. There's a teeny bonus pocket inside, too. And a snap to hold it all together.

The next one is a simpler purse with a brown liner. And a woodsy button on the top. Some of you may notice that I caved and bought new buttons for both purses instead of using the ones from the last blog.

I just started a new project, too. If you make a market bag with yarn bought from Loops and Links in De Pere, she'll give you 5% off every time you use it. I couldn't find a loom-knit pattern that was for me so I'm winging this one. I'll try to write it all down so I can share the pattern if it works out.
