Here's where we are in the felting stash. Sad how quickly it disappears...
Have a few bags down so far - must thank Alison for the great idea of putting slits in one and threading a braid through. Came from her sophie w/ the i cord. And gave me something ELSE to do - this felting thing is getting boring.... knit, knit, knit, wash. The braid was fun in comparison! Might embroider one soon too. We'll see. Could be too much excitement in one week. Must start an alternate project for a sanity check.
And check out the coffee table - misshapen pasta boxes, random soup boxes - all kind of soggy and bent. My husband thinks those are hilarious. But they're the best thing to form the bags, so we eat pasta from boxes that look like they came off the discount wagon at the grocery store. Any better ideas out there?
So, what do you think? Ignore the sideways flying bag - forgot to rotate.
If you saw these in a store, would you pay for them? A friend of mine wants to sell 'em and we're trying to come up with a price - let me know what you think. I know they'll all be a little different, but a range would be extra helpful.
The hard part has been knitting them without following a pattern - I have a basic "recipe" ( a rectangle or square on the bottom between 20 sts and 40 sts wide,about 20-25 rows high - each is different) and then kind of fudge from there so I am not using any specific patterns. Am afraid to violate any copyrights or pattern law... with the web, the knitting police will surely find me.
Otherwise, life has been slow. Lots of beach time - less knitting than I'd hoped since I have to chase my little one around the beach, but rest assured, it's in my bag and does manage to come out a little each day.
Must pack bag for the beach - have 5 kids to escort down today! And the knitting will be in my bag again in the hopes....
