Earrings? Or Stitch Markers?

Some one asked me why I was knitting with earrings.

These are hands down the nicest stitch markers I have ever used. They are from Miss Babs Fiber. And they do look like cute little earrings.

How Not To Felt

Lesson learned: do not put a towel in the washer to assist in the felting process.

You will be picking pieces of terry cloth out of your knitting for HOURS!!

Amanda’s Squatty Sidekick

imageI chose a felted bag since I have only one skein of wool to work with. The pattern is Amanda’s Squatty Sidekick, available free from Interweave.

Another Kate Davies Design

imageI am starting on a shawl designed by Kate Davies. I can’t seem to get enough of her designs.
This one is called Northmavine Hap. It is from her book Colours of Shetland.
I am using Knitpicks Chroma fingering yarn in Seaweed. It is a wool-nylon blend so should be a nice warm shawl that is also light weight.
