FOs finally

i knocked out a couple projects.

my class reunion is at the end of the month, and there will be a silent auction at the family picnic.  i decided to knit a small felted bag and i'll add a gift certificate to Stay Sweet Cupcakery to sweeten the deal.

i winged this pattern by casting on 70 or so stitches, knitting with two strands of yarn.  the body of the bag was knitted in the round.  i used patons wool merino in brown and cherie anne designs eirian for the stripes - i threw a stripe in when i felt like it, and used the yarn for contrasting garter stitch handles.  the handles were 7 stitches and i knit them for 13 inches.


the bag felted through two short cycles.  i think i'm going to make a lining for the inside of the bag to make it sturdier.

cephalopod yarns is collecting hats, mittens and scarves for afghans for afghans until the end of june.  upon receipt of the FO, the knitter will receive an emailed code for a free skein of yarn plus one entry to win a $200 gift certificate for yarn.  each additional FO earns the knitter more entries for the gift cert.  free bugga!?  you betcha!

this is my a4a hat.  i knitted ann budd's basic hat pattern on size 10 and 10.5 needles.  i double stranded the yarn (briggs & little yarn i received in a swap) to make the knitting go faster and the hat is incredibly dense.
