Here is my latest obsession:)

 Knitting. You know I HAD to learn how, so I could do something with all that yarn I'm spinning!
 I actually did this as a test knit for a did it in record time....for me that is.
 From start to finish.....about 2& 1/2 weeks.
 I love how it turned out. I actually started a Margaret Dashwood shawl that I'm still working on, that is identical in color!......And it was NOT planned that way!!
 I haven't carried it yet. Still quite smitten with it...just in the "admiration" stage:)
 Just wanted to share!!
Have a MOST blessed evening girls!!!

Hi Shine! Wow, your purse is beautiful! And you are just learning to knit? This is wonderful, I think you have a real natural talent, this doesn't look like a first project at all. Great job! I also really love the felted look and the neat wood button. Have a wonderful day ahead! Delisa :)

Love it!
One year I did a bunch of felted purses as gifts for Christmas. The next year I did felted clog slippers. I love felting. But taking a break from it now for a while.

I LOVE how this turned out Tamie! Great job! I see Anna may be taking it over? That happens when you have teen-aged girls.

Hi Shine! I was just out and about tonight and thought I would stop by and say hello. I hope you have had a nice September so far. We have had a lot of company this month and I have just gotten back to finishing up a few of my knitting projects. The weather is finally beginning to cool down a bit here in our part of Georgia and there is the tiniest hint of autumn in the air. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Delisa :)
