See you Monday for Knit Night!

Hope to see you at knit night at the Coffee Mill on Monday night (Oct. 29th) from 5 to 7pm. Also, the Radford downtown Trick or Treat Trail is Wednesday for all you trick or treaters!
I love this felted bag because it reminds me of fall and filling up a cute bag with goodies from the farmer's market! I also love her red boots, which seem so appropriate with all the rain we've been having!

Felting Frenzy!

This bag was supposed to be a felted carpet bag. It turned out HUGE! The wood you see sticking out of the top is a wooden structure I had to build to block the bag and give it shape! I sewed the flowers on with scraps of wool yarn. Hopefully you will see the finished product soon!

Hope to see you at Knit Night at the Coffee Mill, Monday August 27th 5-7pm. Stick around for live music starting at 7!
