A Little Knitting...























Here are 2 Booga Bags that I've been working on... (pattern courtesy of Black Sheep Bags at www.blacksheepbags.com, inspiration to make them courtesy of Sam over at Diary of a Mad Fabriholic) . They both will be birthday presents for people, but I am liking these felted bags so much I might have to make myself one. The darker one is all felted and I am happy to say, that since I've taken the photo the rainbow-y one is now ready to be felted too. I probably won't loop the strap through holes as directed - I am thinking of an invisible zipper with the straps sewn to either side.




And here are more knitting projects that are in line... all scarfs. The purple is Baby Alpaca Brush (80% alpaca, 20% acrylic) and the maroon is Frog Tree 100% alpaca - both very soft!!! Oh - and 2 skiens of something else for another scarf (it will be a Christmas present, but the alpaca scarfs are for me, me, me). For good measure I threw my new bamboo needles in the photo - I usually knit on those gray ones you see everywhere, but I must say - now that I've tried bamboo - ooohhh la la!

I'm green with envy. Those Booga Bags are soooo cute. If only I ever finished a knitting project, I might try one. Too many wonderful things to do......

I'm not a knitter, which I might have mentioned before, but I love the colors of the top bag you made.

I agree with you about the bamboo needles - heaven to work with! I like knitting in between quilting - a lovely diversion :-)

I love bamboo needles too-just looked at some yarn on Monday, but resisted buying any more! great fun projects you have been doing-thanks for the knitting inspiration-I am taking mine today to work on.

Hooray for the boog bags- and- you completely deserve one for yourself! And those scarves-to-be, yum.

Have you ever tried Addi turbos for knitting in the round?

You make me tired...you are the busiest momma I know!

Lovely bags! I just bought yarn to create my own bag and looking forward to starting on it. And yes, bamboo needles are the best!! Even airline proof (or at least they were until that thing happened in London)

Your bags are wonderful! Aren't they fun! I can't knit, but I"ve seen them made up and they are just too cute!
