Ok, so I am a total nerd and joined this monthly dishcloth knitalong group. But it's fun! They only send out 8 or so lines of a pattern per day so you don't know what the finished product will look like till it's done. Here it is afer the first two days:
And after the third day (today):
I was thinking yesterday that it might be a cat, and today I'm relatively sure it will be a cat. We'll see!
This is my sophie bag pre-felting. I picked up some of Patons SWS (Soy Wool Stripes) Friday, played around with a swatch Friday night, decided to do a Sophie bag, cast on Saturday morning, finished the bag part by Saturday night, finished the handles on Sunday during the Colts game, and felted it Sunday afternoon. I am amazed at the speed with which I did this. The SWS is so pretty! The colors fade into each other very nicely, and it feels nice too.
This is the bag after felting. I only ran it through the washer on hot/cold once. It could maybe handle a little more felting, but I like it this size. I thought I might give it away for Christmas, but I like it an awful lot and don't know if I can part with it.
