More Presents!I got my first secret pal present yesterday!!!! There's two skeins of cascade 220 in a FABULOUS mottled grey color, and a suggestion that I make a felted bag - she kindly included the "buttonhole bag" pattern. I'm thinking I may make a Sophie bag from Magknits instead - I've been eyeing the bag at the shop, and this is the perfect opportunity to give felting a try! I'll probably have to actually felt it over at my parents' house, though, since the coin operated machines are probably not the best choice for my first felting attempt.
Oh, and the candy? Um, I picked up the package on my way to fill orders at the online store, and I couldn't just leave it in the car to melt, right? So really, I HAD to eat it right then...
But before I can start playing with my felted bag adventure, I need to finish up the last bits on Trellis - I have 1 sleeve seam to sew, the collar to finish and attach, the buttons to sew on, and some crochet edging in the dark pink to add in. I may have a chance to finish it tonight at late night, but since I'm technically working, I may be helping Holly. But I should finish it sometime this week!
Cricket wants me to stop spending so much time at the shop (online and regular!) and start spending more time researching at my desk. She'll get her wish this weekend - I'm having DSL installed tomorrow, so I'll finally have reliable internet at home!
