More Knitting....

Well, I tried my fourth iteration of the pastel sock last night with no success. So, while I mull it over, I've been amusing myself by finishing the little felted bags I started a few weeks ago. I saw the pattern in February here, and knew I'd have to try them.

They work up pretty fast, so like the little bunnies, I figured, if I'm making one, I might as well make several.And remember the little embroidered thumbtacks? I told you you'd be seeing more of them. This time, in the form of button flowers to sew on the purses.

These are so fun to make. They're small -- the buttons are only 3/4- inch. Try them -- they make a quick little project!XOXO,
Anna

Goodness, those are so cute and they are even more cute all lined up like that. The little flower button/pin thingys really make them.

I have just found your blog.

These bags are perfectly adorable. I've been knitting for a few months. I actually learned the knit and pearl stitches awhile back; but, I never learned to do anything with them.

A friend is teaching me. I just finished knitting Fuzzy Feet. You can google it. They're slipper socks. I still need to felt them; I'm just nervous about it. ~smile~

I like your blog. I will be back.

Please drop in and say hi!

Goodness gracious!

That last comment about knitting Fuzzy Feet was from me not my husband! He's not really so domestic. ~grin~ He must have slipped in and signed me out of google and signed himself in. I pushed the post button before I noticed!

He's got a blog also; but, it is I who truly have invited you for a visit. I hope this strikes you as funny as it does me.

Feeling kinda silly,
Laura
