Well, the Felted Day Pack is all finished. I ended up putting the bigger pocket on the front and the two smaller pockets on the back. I had some fabric left from another felted bag and it was the same color as this bag so I made a simple liner with no pockets. A picture is coming soon. I am still working on the Whitby Gansey on the weekends and a Baby sweater from an old Knitters that I am making out of some Red Heart I found in the house. It may become one of my regular baby gift sweaters along with another one that is very similar but out of Plymouth Encore on larger needles and an easier pattern. Once as the baby sweater is done, I will go back to my nieces sweater. I have started the snow flakes and it is looking nice so far.

Well, the Two Old Bags Felted Day Pack is done. I had a bit of extra yarn so I made a cell phone pocket and a pen pocket for the inside plus an outside pocket. It is in the basement almost dry. I love it. It came out so cute. I forgot to take my before felting shot but will take and after felting picture after the pockets are put on. The vest I was planning is all planned but scraped for now. Yesterday, I started my nieces Bday sweater. It is going to be blue with skiers along the bottom, a Reynolds pattern. My Whitby Gansey is going to my parents cottage to work on when I am there.
