Ta Da! I learned a new trick. A special way to block a bag like this. I blew up a balloon inside the bag to shape it and let it dry that way. Now to figure out a reasonable way to mail it. Posted by Picasa

Look! Kittens! Our baby Purl (only one yr old) just had her first litter last night. I got to watch all of them be born. It was really cool. She is a proud momma. I don't think she has stopped purring since she gave birth. My four children have already claimed one each. Posted by Picasa

Here is the bag I made for the international Tote Exchange. I am not happy with how the felting turned out, nor the blocking. I think the problem with the felting is that I used different yarns. I also have no Idea how to block these things, let alone mail them. Posted by Picasa

Here is the bottom of the bag I made. Probably its best feature. Posted by Picasa

Here is the Tilt sweater I knit. It is the first pattern that I altered to fit me. I used Noro Kuryon yarn and just loved watching the clolours. I tried to get the colours to match up and, while not perfect, are pretty close. Posted by Picasa

Here is the Tilt sweater from the side. You can really tell the different directions the sweater is knit in. Posted by Picasa

Here is my Tilt sweater without the buttons. I haven't had a chance to go look for any yet.  Posted by Picasa
