Charity Case

I just finished the wreath to turn in for the United Way auction. The deadline is tomorrow and I had to really hustle. This was the single most annoying project I've ever worked on. Getting the wires in the flowers after felting was sheer torture. Trying to get the damn things arranged nicely on the wire wreath frame was nigh on impossible.
I think it's ugly and am frankly embarrassed to turn it in, but it would look worse to flake. I should have crocheted a baby blanket as per my first instinct. Oh well, at least my official performance reviews will be based on the geology, not the extracurricular knitting.

On a completely unrelated note, I have decided I need to work on devising a new pattern over the weekend. This time we're going siliceous and let's just say it is bound to be totally rad.

Yeah, that's right, I'm going to do some more felting. I have my own washer and dryer IN my APARTMENT. NO QUARTERS NEEDED. These will be added to a project I'm making for the United Way Silent Auction at work. I originally said I could make a baby blanket, but had to scale back a bit as the deadline is next week.

Felted GPS Cozy

Front and back view respectively. I made this out of hand dyed fisherman's wool and I quite like how the color striping turned out. I hope my Garmin doesn't get too hot in his little sweater.

Little bubbles baby set, the finale

I swear this is the last post about this, but I thought people might get a kick out seeing the whole ensemble.

Pirate King Skinny Scarf

Ahoy mateys! I finally decided on a good project for the knit picks Imagination hand paint sock yarn, pirate king colorway... Argh, these chevron seas be mighty wavy, but oh so boring to knit.
