The two bags on the left were trip knitting. Because I did so much driving this vacation, I didn't knit nearly as much as I had anticipated. I finished the right bag after we got home. I also knitted a little on a new Sonnet sweater.
Here they are, stuffed with books to make them square and drying in the sun. It was the first day of spring and it was nice have the weather seem spring-like. It didn't last.
If you've missed me saying it before, put the things you want to felt in the washing machine inside a zippered pillow case. This stuff would have gone into the pump. Instead it went into the bags. This lesson wasn't learned by me, but by Sara and I'm a good student.
The left bag is natural colored Icelandic wood, the center is stuff that I found and should have lost, the right back is natural dyed Border Leicester wool. I'm out of yarn now.
Well, except for this and I'm not sure the robin's egg blue of these indigos and the red of chochineal have the potential to work up into anything. I guess I made that gummy-bear colored bag, I suppose I could give this a go. We'll see. I guess it needs to be something.
