Something old, something new...

But not borrowed or blue. A long time ago (feels like a lifetime ago actually) I had an idea for a felted bag. But it wasn't the right time to make it. Rules, appearances, etc. So I didn't. But I kept it in my sketchbook, and the other day I decided it was time. So I rummaged through my stash of Lamb's Pride Bulky and pulled out the lime green and the pale pink. And I swatched. And I felted the swatch. And then I knitted. And after a short while I had this:

strappy-taffy

Which turned into this:

taffy-side-A

And I'm sorry, but don't you just love it? I love it. I really do. I had all sorts of notes and ideas about the details (like the i-cord bind off for the edges) and it all just worked. I love it. I'm calling it Saltwater Taffy. Because of the colors and the twists. I'll say it again. I love it!

At least being sick all week got me something.
