Thanks so much to everybody who stopped by to say, "Hi." It was fun to link back to find some great blogs. You guys ROCK!
At long last here is a photo of the completed River Rock Bag (Booga J pattern). I had knit and felted this on vacation last August out of Noro Kureyon #80. Then the bag took a trip to my mom's for lining installation and then back home for grommets and handle. I love the rocket ship/space-themed lining. You can't see it in the photo, but there is a zippered pocket inside along with a heavy-duty snap for closure.
When I knitted my Sunset Tote Bag out of 9 balls of Noro Kureyon #102, I found the I-cord strap was a bit "wonky." Even now, I am not crazy about the strap and I intend to replace it at some point. For the River Rock Back, as you can see, I used some nice black cording picked up at Wal-Mart.
Here is a photo of my pre-felt Barney Blues Booga Bag. It was knit out of Noro Kureyon #31 (discontinued). I decided to tackle the Kureyon I-cord again. This time, however, I am doubling the yarn and so far it looks to be a bit more substantial and able to stand up to felting. Desert Knitter Jan asked how many skeins I used for the Sunset Tote I-cord. Unfortunately, I can't remember. However, I am keeping track with this current Barney Blues I-cord.
Well, it looks like I'm ready for Halloween! Here is my pre-felted River Rock Bucket-O-Chic. It is knit from Noro Kureyon #80. Can't wait to see it felted!
And lastly, the multi-directional Icelandic scarf WIP.
