Knit urge

I got this great knit dishcloth pattern last night, and I finished it last night too!
I just HAD TO knit last night, and once I started on this project, I couldn't put my needles down!


Rachel created this cute dishcloth design, and I'm now trying to decide which one I'll get next from her website. :)

I got to knit more since my knitting skill has gotten really rusty. :(
My cast-on is a little floppy, and it was hard to keep the same tension. Let me just blame it on the cotton yarn, ok. :D

Felted Cache Bag

Do you remember this post..... and how it ended up?
Well, I made a felted bag with the yarn! :)


Yarn: Moda Dea Cache
Pattern: None
I only used double crochet stitches so this bag was one evening project, which I LOVE! Last year, I experimented felting with a project for which I only double-crocheted, and it felted just fine so since then, I like to just use dc for my own felting projects (although I love the Tunisian crochet stitches as well).
This bag is thick and sturdy, and I think it's perfect for carrying around materials for crochet & knit projects!
I got to say, my felting is really going well. :))

I recently went to one of my local craft stores first time in a long time, bought some yarn to make 3 more bags, and also found they now carry the Red Heart Soft Yarn(About time)! Yay!!! I only bought 1 skein this time just to try this yarn, but I know (& I knew), this is going to be my favorite yarn! I'm already dreaming about soft and comfy afghans and such... :)
Wel…
