I’m always being accused of/admired for my enabling abilities when it comes to knitting and yarn purchasing.
And I’m this close to sucking in one of my non-knitting coworkers.
(Insert evil laughter here.)
I showed her my first Booga Bag in progress last week and she was almost drooling over the yarn. She has now seen the completed felted bag, and my new Booga Bag in progress.
“Wendy, I could knit a scarf from that, couldn’t I?
Why, yes, my pretty . . .
“Wendy, when can we start lunchtime knitting classes?”
Soon, very soon.
I am in my element.
And then, another of my coworkers told me this morning that her brother became the proud papa of a new baby son yesterday.
And I say, “You know, I know some awfully cute, easy baby patterns. . .”
And she admitted to thinking about learning to knit.
I don’t think I mentioned an “entries must be received by” date and time when I annunced the contest. Doh!
Entries must be received by 5pm EST this Friday, October 17.
Don’t forget! The drawing for the raflle will be held this weekend! Check my website on Saturday afternoon, because I will post the winners then. A special weekend edition of Wendyknits! Can you stand the excitement?
Because I’m a Geek . . .
I made myself some new “business” cards.
I often find myself in the position of giving my URL to people. Someone on the tran will admire a sock-in-progress and want the pattern (believe it or not, this has happened several times). A coworker has a relative who is a knitter and wants to tell her about my site. I whipped out a card and gave it to her.
Booga Bag Number Two
The bag part is almost done in this photo. I-cord time!
And look what came in the mail today:
A blurry pic of some of the Kureyon color #55 I got in the mail today from L-B. We did a trade.
I think this stuff is gonna make a bag for me!
Felting Qs and As
Some of you had some questions. Here are my answers.
I used just regular laundry detergent when I felted my bag.
The instructions for putting the straps on the bag are very easy to understand when you have the bag sitting in front of you. Julie writes a good clear pattern!
Other Qs and As
The Spongebob tattoo I showed a few weeks ago is a fake. Who on earth would be nuts enough to have a character from an aminated show tattooed on her?
Uh . . . wait . . .
I take that back.
A question I get a lot is: “How the heck do you do anything with those nails?”
Well you see, I don’t actually do anything other than work and knit.
