Cell phone cozy

I made a cell phone cozy from the Stitch 'n Bitch book. One of the girls at work keeps dropping her razr phone so I made a cozy for it to buffer it when she drops it out of her purse. She was happy to model it for a picture. Thanks, Maria!

New stash

I got some great bargains on yarn this week thanks to Sip and Knit's yarn sale and Hancock's fabric. Here are my latest acquisitions. The purple yarn is some Peruvian cotton/angora that I am going to make into a shell. The green is going to be used for a cardigan and the Bolero balls for some more felted clutch and of course I had to buy some more sock yarn. I should be keeping busy for awhile.

One Skein Clutch

Before Felting, After Felting

I finally successfully complete a clutch from the One Skein book. My first attempt didn't felt correctly because the yarn I used didn't have a high enough content of wool. My latest effort used Landscape yarn and worked well. I have some more yarn to try - Bolero. I'm enjoying this book immensely. I'm trying to decide what else I want to make from it. My current project is almost done as well. I am making a cell phone cozy from Stitch and Bitch. I will post a picture as soon as it is completed as well as my latest stash procurements. Major stash additions due to some good sales at Sip and Knit and Hancock Fabrics.

Kentucky Derby

Yesterday I had the pleasure of volunteering to work at a Derby Day event at the stables I volunteer at. The past couple of weeks I had been frantically knitting flowers so I could decorate my hat. I managed to finish attaching the last flower about two hours before I had to be there. The horse I picked to win didn't even place. I guess I'd better stick to horse care duties and knitting, instead of picking Derby winners.
