Knitting With Red Hot Needles ......

Sometimes I think I am so fickle ...... the other week it was the gorgeous Studio 490 stamps (although it still is - lol), earlier today my friend Sue (the one who hasn't got a Blog but should have) told me about the new Nestabilities (I can feel a spend coming on - lol) and the last week or so has been knitting ........... which will soon become felting ..... (well it would be rude not to follow what a lot of other people are doing - wouldn't it ....)
Anyways from this ....This being Cascade 220 yarn, which is 100% wool from Peru via Canada, a beautiful pattern for a felted bag by Noni and a US size 8 circular needle - all supplies from Get Knitted in Bristol ....
To this .....This is the finished knitted bag which is held up with a pile of paperback books. I am now off to put it in the washing machine on a 60 degree wash with this .....
It may well be that this is the last you see of this project - lol.
Be back later with the felted (hopefully) piece ........
