Completed Booga Bag

I finally got my bag felted. It took about 5 washings. Did 3 with jeans and my bag in a pillow case and it didn't seem to want to do much felting so I put it in a mesh bag and washed twice with towels.......That worked much better. My bag is small but I am really proud of it. This is my first time using Noro Kureyon and felting. This is marvelous yarn to work with...I may have to try my hand at something else.

Newest Project UFO

I am a new member of Ravelry and there is a whole bunch there. I was doing some browsing and came across one of my favorite people. The Yarn Harlot. Yep Stephanie Pearl McPhee. She had this very simple pattern called One Row Scarf. There is only one row to remember and it is reverseable. I don't know if it is OK to post the 1 row so I won't. But you may be able to google it. I am doing this with MicoSpun and probably will use 2 balls. This will be the last time I do anything with MicroSpun. Even though it is super soft, it splits terribly. This scarf is done on size 7 needles. As you can see I am using my KP options with the harmony tip. Just love those harmony needles.

Sherlock Holmes Hat

I thought this was a really cute hat. I found the pattern on Annie's Attic POD.

I won't do this one again because there are a lot of cut and joins. I prefer to basically do a project in one piece.

It turned out ok. My ear flaps aren't exactly equal but it will serve its purpose. It is made with WW and calls for a G hook. I made mine with an F hook.

Noro and Booga

This is my first time using Noro Yarn. Noro Kureyon to be exact. I really like working with it . I used it to make a Booga Bag. The pattern and yarn can be found at

Ok, here is the bag before felting. I did the wash in hot water about 4 times and didn't think it was enough, so tomorrow I will wash it some more. I hope to post the finish project soon.

Love making those socks

Bought on eBay, this is the yarn I used for my latest pair of socks. It is Tiny Toes and very soft.

The next pair for me will be patterned. The stockinette just doesn't show the beauty of these colors. I am still in the learning process and these don't fit as tight as I would like them. On to another pair for hubby.
