The bag felted nicely, and I'm afraid I'm in love with it. The bass clef is actually chocolate brown. I wish the whole thing had pooled the delicious way the top three inches did, but such is life--splotchy stripes are whatever, too.
Here's a top that would have been mine if I'd ever bothered to make a gauge swatch larger than two rows of ten stitches. It's too small for me to wear practically, so right now it's chilling/making a colossal fashion statement on my half-mannequin Felika:
(I don't think "knit core" is copyrighted, since I've seen it several different places. Basically, I stole the term because it's awesome.)
Knitty's Topi, which was a very fast (and very purple) knit. Two days, biaatch!
Modified to have a much shorter brim and some decorative little X's on the sides.
WIP--a little fingerless glove experiment. This is clearly not a design for worsted weight yarn, but I had to use it for the test drive of the pattern since I'm currently in lust with these two colors.
Next up, how about a completed pair of these? And what of that knobbly, fugged out scarf I'm halfway through? The woman at this store called Kente International asked me if I knew any local artists and I was like, "uh, me." So I have to make all these quick, popular projects so I can sell stuff there. Eventually.
It's good to be home!
