doing what Jackie does

I’ve had a good crochet weekend –
I designed a felted purse, made it, and felted it!!!
It’s still drying, but I’ll post a pic when it’s ready for its closeup.

I’m still working on my shawl. I’m thinking it’s about half done. Since this is the first time I’m making one for me, I’m having some trouble gauging how long to make it. I have set aside 3 skein of homespun for it, and am 1/2 through the second skein.

Now that it looks like cooler weather is here to stay, I’m thinking about my feet again. I made 2 pair last year, but I’m not as happy with them as I once was.

I’m considering converting this pattern, (which I love, btw), into a felted version. I used it to make my slippers, and a pair for my youngest, so it’s a terrific pattern!

  1. I haven’t had time to crochet lately but I would love to be able to sit and make something. I love your pictures but let me ask you something. Clue me in on this felted purse thing. I know crocheting but have been away from the crochet world for a while and I have no idea what this is. How about a picture of it? Love your blog.

  2. You are so talented! I have checked out your pix and your work is stunning. I should only hope to crochet that well, one day:) I love the food items!
    Thanx
