A Little Felted Hat

My first felted piece! A gift for M and P's baby, Emmett.. did I spell that right? This hat was SO fun to make and took about 30 minutes in the dryer with one big, wet towel. No washer time, just the dryer. You can see that I looked like Mushmouth with it on, and the after picture, it's so, so tiny!!

Some New Things...

Work is kicking my everloving BUTT!! I don't have time to do half the things I'd like to do. It's like my life has been reduced to staring (sp) at 6' tall tan walls and a tan ceiling watching the clock flip to the next minute and waiting for the phone to ring. This is NOT feeding my soul! But, I must admit, I LOVE payday! There's something very wrong with this picture!
Anyhow, here are some pictures of a couple of washclothes from the Yahoo dishcloth knitters group that's really fun. Nice way to feel like you've accomplished something! I can do about 5 rows on my breaks at work, so that's always nice!
I'm also trying to finish my mobius scarf from LAST winter... I'll probably finish it after we move back to FL or TX with my luck! I guess then it'll be a holiday gift for someone who chooses to live in the frozen north!! And my sox are on standstill while I try to learn how to do cables on a scarf for J...
OK, pictures! I hate blogs that don't have lots of photos!!! Top photo is a cat. There was no black cotton to be had around here, so I did it in something fallish. The other is an illusion cloth. Look at it from above, it's just stripes. Look from the side and voile! You have candy corn!!
