Pretty miserable out today, complete 360 from last weekend's great weather, but very much a deja-vu from Miss G's visit a few week's ago. It's rainy out, just like it was when she was in town, and I started out the morning by heading to the same yarn store we started our Saturday day out on, to pick up some more of the same wool I picked up during her visit. Lots of sames, I'm sure you can see the deja-vu-ness I'm referring to.
I'm about 5 inches away from having the main part of the felted bag finished. Things have slowed down considerably due to my not reading the pattern properly (or at all) when I bought the wool, and not picking up enough. With more than enough supplies now, I'm so looking forward to the upcoming felting fun.
I got restless during the week, and cast on another project:
This will one day be the zippered cardigan from Phildar Printemps 2005--or parts of it, anyway. I've had the supplies for months, but had intended to make the Ribby Cardi first, as a practice cotton sweater. As I continue to be frustrated with the cotton I'm using for the Ribby Cardi, I far prefer the idea of starting 8 or 9 more projects before going back to it again. All to say, don't expect rapid progress, certainly nothing to match the magnifigance of this!
