Why Hi Everybody!

I had a very busy day yesterday- saw Kipper, Nina, Ryan, Tracy, Essie, Jenn, Sara, Christina, Caitlin, Julia, Ryan, Jess, and Lisa. Not all at once of course. I was out of the house from 8am to 11pm. I bought a nice bag of veggies from the market (and of course another brownie from Veganmania). I played cards, had bubble tea, bought some yarn, and got lots of hugs. It's all good.

Otherwise than that I started teaching this week. My job is super hard and teachers are under appreciated but I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's where I want to be.

And here are some fuzzy pictures of the Beast which felted Like A Dream. No struggles, no pulling, no hand-felting~ just popped it in a pillow case, threw it in a top loader with a few towels (they did get a colour change), and without knowingly had it on delicate. Regardless, perfection! I have some beautiful pink satin/silk to line it but I couldn't photograph the colour in my night-time apartment. Try again soon. I also can't seem to find bag feet. Stupid fabricland. I will try to get some better photos right soon.

The front (which kinda is that fuzzy):
The side (those are the loops for the handles fyi) (aka: Yarnpiggy's Pasties):
The inside (knitting the fair isle loose paid off nicely):I'm pretty sure the Beast could hold water and withstand a grizzly attack.
I don't know about you but I'm going to bed.

Sweet dreams!

My favourite knitting teacher!

The beast turned out gorgeous. Felting is magic of the highest order. Like turning the heel of a sock magic. :)

Wait, that should be teacher who knits, shouldn't it? Thankfully I'm a Crim major. Phew!

Try them for feet - they're quick shippers - I've used them many times for different bits and bobs.
