I've been working on a fulled bag. Using Noro, Kuryon, 100% wool yarn, which is self striping. Turned out great so far. Knitted the handles too. Now I have to get up the nerve to full it in the washer. Scary. Wish me luck.

So, I've been knitting.

I'm frustrated. All ready wrote this post but it was taking quite a long time to post it, so gave up and am starting again.

Finished the Fulled bag that I'm making, although still working on the handles. Then I will full it if it works in my Front loading washer. We'll see. I used Noro Kureyon 100% wool. It makes it's own stripes which is cool.

Reading, R is for Richochet, by Sue Grafton. She's written a bunch one for each letter of the alphabet. R is as far as she's gotten so far. Started with A is for Alibi.

Taking two online classes. One is on Digital Cameras, and the other is a Franklin Covey type class called Focus, achieving your highest priorities. Enjoying them both.

Need to blog more often I guess. Have been knitting. Finished knitting the fulled bag I've been knitting. Working on the handles at the moment. Bag looks great. Used Noro Wool yarn, Kureyon, which makes it's own stripes. Pretty cool. Bought the yarn in Nova Scotia, Ca. Can't wait to full the bag. Hope it works in my front loader washer. I'll try just a square first to make sure. If not I'll have to try it at the laundramat or something.

Hi all,

Been knitting a fulled bag in Noro Wool. Makes it own stripes. Got 3 skeins each a little different that go together when I was up in Nova Scotia on vacation.
Couldn't resist starting it. Got it a little past halfway done. Then I'll need to make a square and try fulling it, and then do the bag if it works well.

Need to figure out if I can add pictures to this blog. Not sure.

Taking two online classes. One on Digital Cameras that I had to pay for, and the other a free class on Franklin Covey's Focus, a time management thing. Trying to get smart in my old age or something.

Haven't worked on the baby sweater, needed to take a break from it. I will get it done for late fall as they live in Texas.

So, I've been knitting.
