doing what Jackie does

I’d forgotten what I started felting for… – OK, my apologies for injuring the awesome REO Speedwagon song! :blush:

I think I’m in love with Cache yarn! I found it on CLEARANCE at Michaels this past weekend. First, I was attracted to it’s amazing price ($1), then the colors. Imagine my surprise to learn that the yarn is 75% wool! I grabbed a few skeins, raced home and started on a bag! It took almost 4 full skeins and it’s pre-felted size was 15″ wide x 9.5″ tall (without handles) After felting, it measures about 12.5″ wide and 8.25″ tall (without handles)

I’ll post pics soon – I couldn’t wait to start using it!

I’ve started a bag for my youngest DD already!

    I LOVE wool! I want to get into crocheting / knitting , which I did dabble in years ago, but I have WAY to much on my plate right now. So I will just have to sit back and admire your work for now! =)))
    Love the new blog look … and “All Fiber, No Fat!” that’s TOO funny! I love it!

  4. Hi there Jackie, I found you through Jessica and Sharon’s blog. 🙂 I’m a married 30-yr-old sis from the east coast of Canada, and I’m enjoying your blog immensely! You seem like a very creative sister – your work is lovely.

    My favourite pastimes are soapmaking (cold-process) and bookbinding (handbound leather journals & blankbooks). Are you selling on Etsy? If so, please let me know your site so I can add you to my faves. And in the meantime, might I add a link to your site on my blogs?
