Here is a picture of A's felted satchel ( the green one) and mine pre-felting. Her's is actually a very large size but looks small next to mine.
Went on a small road trip today. Since A. got the new car we have been driving all over. We went over the river to Knit On in Bellevue. A small store but packed with loads of stuff. I didn't buy any yarn but sure was tempted. They had lots of Noro and sock yarns of all kinds so next time I will be prepared and take extra money so I can add to the yarn stash. But did buy a set of circulars so I can knit a sweater from the top down. I've never done that before so it should be fun.

Now that the warm weather is here I have my poor, lonely wristlets lying about looking rather pathetic. They are so lovely and warm it's too bad the time to wear them is just about over. I enjoyed knitting them, very fast and easy. They are made of Berrocco Ultra Alpaca and I got 2 pairs out of one skein. Which is a good deal, I think.
Nice warm weather today but windy. I suppose I can pull out my short-sleeved sweater tomorrow. It's a lovely coral color but I'm not sure how good it looks while on.

Spent a few hours watching season 6 of Northern Exposure. Great fun but too bad there aren't any more. I own 1 and 2 and eventually would like to have the whole series. Good knitting shows.
I think that I shall take my tea-Jasmine Estate-and do a little knitting. Good night all!

Yesterday I went to the lys and found the KnitKlips that I've been wanting. And if I go on Sunday and take a few things that I knitted from yarn that I bought there I will get a 40% coupon for each item. Then I can buy some more KnitKlips.
I also placed an order from KnitPicks....I wish it were here. I ordered a dvd-How to Knit a Sweater from the Top Down, 2 balls of the Memories sock yarn in the color Rocky Mountain Dusk (which will go beautifully with my new lavender Crocs that I also bought yesterday) a set of KnitPicks ID tags, a sweater stone (yes A. your sweater needs to have a nice "stoning") and the book- I Can't Believe I'm Knitting Socks. Should be fun when the package comes.
Almost finished with the second front on my sweater. Got alot done today while watching ''Fiddler on the Roof". I hadn't seen it in years and enjoyed it immensely. Just found this blog and it looks quite good:
Booking Through Thursday
A couple weeks ago, we asked about how you take care of your books, with one of the questions asking whether you write in your books. Well, what about books that are meant to be written in? Like, say, a journal or diary? Do you keep one? Obviously, if you're answering this, you have a blog--do you just let your blog be your journal? Or do you also keep one for private stuff also?
Yes, I keep a journal, I've kept one since I was in junior high back in the 70's. I do blog but I have several journals as well--one that is more of an everyday "art" journal for everything and then a private one only for me.
