While I have been spending most of my time packing and working, I have found some time for knitting. And what have I been knitting? New felted bags, of course! Here's a sneak peek at the two designs that are currently in the works:
This is a yet unnamed backpack design. This is my first attempt at the bag -- it usually takes a few attempts before I'm satisfied with a design. What do you think?
And here's a bit of the Heidi Tote. Perfect example of unexpected results. I knit up a smaller version and it turned out great, but when I translated it into the larger size things went a bit awry. I think I have a solution, but I need to work through the details and knit it up again.
Moving day is just over a week away, so these designs may not be finished up until late June or early July, but I'm excited to have two in process! Speaking of moving day, our closing (the second of three!!) is tomorrow. Wish us luck!
And finally I leave you with a picture (mostly for Bonne Marie's benefit). Remember when you were a kid and there were great prizes in the cereal box? Okay, maybe they weren't that great, but I'm sure my mom still had a heck of a time keeping the peace in a house with 4 kids when a new box was opened! Well, Cheerios has started to put prizes in the box again. Of course it's not like the old days when you had to dig through the cereal to find it. Now it's hermetically sealed and placed outside the interior cereal bag. But the prizes are much cooler than when I was a kid. Last month it was Matchbox cars (Maddie has six of them I think -- the girl *loves* her Cheerios). This month (due to the cross promotion gods -- lol!) it's Shrek 2 watches. Yep, watches! Here's the one she pulled out of the box today:
