Thanks for all the congrats on my engagement. Since I’ve been engaged, the most common question has been “When are you getting married?” I get to tell them “I have no idea”. I still haven’t gotten used to calling Matt my “fiance”. I still call him my boyfriend in most conversations. I have to think about the title fiance. Old habits die hard especially when I have been calling him my boyfriend for the last five years. But I’ll get there.
Here’s a picture of Lucy #2 unfelted. It’s made with two and a tad skeins of Paton’s Classic Merino Wool. I know you can’t tell in the picture but it’s purple. Hopefully the light is better in the daytime so it won’t look so washed out. I made it all the way thru the long strap with 2 skeins then i had to dive into the third skein for the short strap. So I have almost a whole skein of yarn left. I plan on hanging on to random feltable wool so I can knit a huge felted bag.
I just took the bag out of the wash and it appears to have felted perfectly. I am holding off posting a finished pic until it’s completely dry to call it a success. I don’t want to jinks myself.
