Knitting?? Sewing?? Oh The Frustration!!



I have a new past time that unfortunately has distracted me from knitting ....it is called blog surfing. Every night I sit down to knit and suddenly find myself reading blogs. I have discovered some great sewing blogs and these bloggers have stirred a need in me to create something with my sewing machine. JoJo's tutorial on tissue holder will be my first project for the summer. I found some great cloth to make several. If it works out well, maybe I can make some as gifts for fellow teachers. Speaking of JoJo, I read her blog last night and as it turns out, I was the 3rd person to comment on her created tags and now she is sending me some. I am excited. I love this world of bloggers.

I haven't completely neglected my knitting. Here is my latest felted creation. I used Lion Brand Watercolors yarn and some left over Kool Aid dyed yarn. I am very pleased with it. Currently I am working on a pattern called The Balloon Bag in a striped pattern of royal blue, yellow and orange. I should finish it tonight IF I don't get lost in the world of blogs :)

I like your bag! I especially like the flecks of color in the Watercolors yarn. And the fabrics are great! I used to sew a lot and all the sewing bloggers are getting to me, too! :)

Hi! It's me, Diane from Felted Handbag Workshop. I am really looking forward to seeing pictures of your finished Balloon Bag.

I really, really want to make one with Kureyon, but have not found the time. Before fall!

Happy knitting! Your koolaid/watercolor bag turned out great.

You remind me that I have tissue covers stacked and waiting to be put together. I suppose that would qualify for the finish what you have pool on flickr...
I like the fabrics you have there.
Thank you for coming by and leaving a comment...I appreciate that very much.
