Felted Bowl

This was the hardest thing I've ever felted. I don't know if I should've doubled the yarn (Noro) but I've never had anything take this long to felt in my life. I think I ran it through the cycle 6 times before I gave up. BUT, I do like the bowl and I've always wanted to make a felted one. It's going to live on my coffee table. Wonder what it will end up holding.

Ggester Hat

I found this pattern on Ravelry and fell in love with it.

As you can see, my son was not in a hat modeling mood. I think that both he and the hat are darned cute!!

Doesn't everyone need a knitted lip balm cozy?

I knitted this as a swap gift. I think it came out cute and I'm hoping the giftee likes it.

Vote for Susie!!! (please)

I wonder, is this cheating? I don't know but I know it can't hurt.

My friend Susie designed this reusable bag for Kroger. She says "My odds are like 1 in a bazillion of winning the $1K. Kroger (and other stores) have this "design a reusable shopping bag contest." You can design your bag and then people can vote on it. If you have the most votes, you win $1000. So, I'm going to be a schmooze and beg for votes."

I'm guessing she'll see me schmooze for her the next time she looks at my blog but what are friends for. If you're so inclined to vote, here's the link.
