We're leaving on vacation early Friday morning and I'm desper-
ately trying to tie up loose ends. Here are the last six hats that I've finished for this season and I need to get them in the mail to the Brewery Arts Center. I liked Amy's suggestion about using some artistic license when naming my projects, so I've decided to start with this batch.
Beginning with the pink hat on the right and going clockwise, I named my hats: Raspberry Pie with Cherries, Wild Iris in Spring, Clouds at Dusk, Red Sky at Night, Spongy Earth and New Grass, and House Finch Songbird. I'll get better with practice. Suggestions are welcome.
I had finished one more more bag, but the other day when I went to put the ties on, realized that it wasn't felted enough and so gave it another run through the washer. I finished it today. Twice I've been asked if I have anything in browns. I don't know what is meant by "browns," but this is very brown. I spun the yarn from Icelandic roving that I've had hanging around for years. Brown Bag - brown .
One of the wonderful things about these bags is that I get to dig into my oh-so-deep, deep stash. Did I mention that my fiber stash is deep?
This is why the bottom of my bags are square. I stuff them with books while they are drying, in case you missed an earlier blog on my maniac method of shaping my bags. These books are deaccessioned library books so I don't have to feel guilty about producing damage. I realize that it apears that I have had a flurry of finished projects - not so. I've been working on them for quite a while and am now tieing up the loose ends.
I'm facing the crisis at hand - what to take for trip knitting. I have enough for two bags but given the driving we'll be doing, that won't be enough. Oh what to do. What to do?
