My Mini Mochi Bag (not yet on Ravelry) is knit up and ready to felt. Actually, can you hear? That’s the washing machine in the background. It’s my first trial of using a front loader for felting, so I’m not sure how this will turn out. I’ll certainly let you know. This is the project bag from the course you encouraged me to take from Annie Modesitt’s online courses. I’ve really enjoyed it, her videos are so clear and well laid out. I haven’t been part of the chats as they are just too late at night for me. Too bad. I’m glad she save’s the transcripts so you can read back through them. It was a fun little knit…I was far more consistent on the second half. I guess I just got more serious about it…the first half was done at my desk in between other tasks. The second was in my usual knitting spot and I was focused. If you look closely you can see where things gain better structure and consistency. Well, okay, you don’t have to look that closely.
It was a very busy week including a trip to the west coast. I got another sock done, so Hugs and Kisses are up to about 80% done. I’m verifying the pattern as I go, so once I’m finished I should be able to put it up pretty quickly. Seems like this weekend flew by, an event tonight for Dale’s volunteer consulting work (fundraiser dinner for a homeless shelter here in Alexandria) and then back to the grind. Here’s a shot of where I seem to spend so much of my time.
