Felt Fur & Yarn
I'm trying to churn out lots of felted earrings right now. These ones are for my best buddies whose birthdays are Sunday and Monday! For the first time I am hoping they won't read my blog until they receive them but if they do I don't think it will be too much of a surprise... Anyways I wanted to document them before I sent them off (they live in Rhode Island and Calgary).
And a big thank you to the boyfriend for secretly wanting to felt and suggesting to add buttons into the felt balls... Brilliant boy.
Gunna sneak a picture of Frankie (my cat) in this post. And yes, he's wearing a hoodie... It has "Frankie Says Relax" printed in gold letters on the back... It kind of makes him look like a boxer. I realize this is ridiculous but it makes me really happy. And he actually likes it. He rolls around in it purring and trying to eat the strings. He's not your average cat.
I also realized I haven't mentioned how the Stitch and Bitch is going! It's called Bitchin Stitchin and it's held weekly in the apartment. This upcoming week will be our third meeting! It's quite possibly the raddest Stitch and Bitch around. Along with the normal knitting circle activities such as bitching and sharing knitting techniques, we bring baked goods, have friends knitting with us via skype, and watch arrested development. Couldn't ask for a better Tuesday night! Here is my roomie, Jarika, with her homemade chocolate peanut butter oatmeal cookies. She doesn't think she can cook or bake but I beg to differ. Stay tuned for more actual knitting photos when I get my camera back from the shop :) Then no more of this low quality photobooth business!
If you are in Winnipeg and want to join 'Bitchin Stitchin' feel free to leave a message in the comments and I'll let you know where and when!
