A weekend success story

Before I start I want to report my first knitting sighting on campus. I went to buy a salad for lunch at our coffee stand and there was a student knitting a sweater in the round! Knitters unite!

I did it, I did it! Yes, I actually finished that yucky bag that I have been struggling through. Just a refresher--before:

I put it in a zipper pillow case and tossed it into the washing machine on HOT. Here is the post felted product:

And the other view:

I am much more pleased with this post felting. I put a box inside the purse to help it dry into shape. The pocket is dry, but the purse is still damp. I gave it some good tugs to try to shape it into the perfect square. It does look like the strap didn't shorten as much as I would like and the one color square is a bit bigger than the other. But, who care? I will finish it and use it to tote yarn in this week!!

I started Klara's second sleeve, which should be finished at some point this week. I plan on seaming her this weekend.

Have you seen the Knitty surprise? What a great idea! Plus, I have to say that I love the boobie scarf:

I might have to try this one.
