Here is what is on my needles right now. I am making this neck warmer for my daughter Katy. The first picture is the picture from the pattern. Then the next picture is of what I have knitted. I only have a few more rows until I am done. Then I have to do some crocheting on the edge which I don't know how to do which I suppose I will figure it out!!!!

1/2/2009-I updated this posting from so long ago because I wanted to add the pattern. So here it is:

Mass Ave. Knit Shop in Indianapolis

When I was in Indianapolis I went to the Mass Ave. Knit Shop. There they gave me this really cool bag and then I bought 3 skeins of handcrafted kettle dyed wool so that I could make some men's hats for Christmas. The shop owner wrote down for me the best pattern to use for the yarn that I bought. So I was very happy about that. The fun furry yarn I bought is for a hooded scarf that I want to make for myself. I don't typically like anything to furry but I thought that this was nice. It was a fun little shop and I am way glad that I went.

Pam's Knitted Purse

The first picture you see is what the pattern's picture looks like and then the next one is the purse that I did. This purse was really a pain in the you know what. I am sorry Pam but I started this in June or July of this year and I just now got it done (after putting it down a few times) and it is the middle of November. It is knitted with Berroco Suede. Which is pretty cool stuff by the way.


Here is the very first purse that I have ever felted. I bought this wool at a Fiber Festival in Corydon Indiana that I went to several weeks ago. The wool itself is a rug wool and was very itchy to work with but felted beautifully. The purse itself only took me about 1 week to knit. I bought the button from Baer Fabrics in Louisville, Kentucky. I am very pleased with the outcome. If anyone is interested in this pattern please let me know and I would be more than happy to share!!
