Scarf, dishcloth, sweater, whatever!

So Lotus Knits! is having a contest. Here's my entry...technically my second item knitted, the first, a dishrag, is in the laundry bin and not fit to photograph! This simple little felted purse in Cascade wool was Rena's idea. After the beginners class we took together she wanted to do a felted purse and this is mine.

Cass, over at Shut Up I'm Counting clued me in to this contest, I've helped her get another entry in the contest and if you go check it out and enter the contest, mention you read about it on my blog. You'll be entered and I'll get another chance. Tell all your friends! I-covet-Amber!!!

It's been another beautiful day here in West Michigan. The first day of Summer, yay! The roses are beautiful, see...If you click on the photos they'll enlarge...I think:)

But the pictures never look as good as the flowers. They change so much every day. The little bit of rain we got the past couple days really made them pop out.

And, Laurie, I did some work on my irises this week and it looks like I'll be able to salvage enough to start over in the Fall. Phew! I won't plant them alone this time though and only a few. That way I can keep better track of them. Thanks for caring.

Tomorrow night Rena and I will be off to the Late Night Yarnie Party at City Knitting. Should be lots of fun! I'll be chaining this evening for the Chanson En Crochet by Mari Lynn Patrick that was in Knitting Daily this week. I've been looking for a little something I could hook-up with a few skeins of Berroco Soft Twist I picked up in Med Pink. I'll post some pics when I accomplish something on it.

It was good to see that Amy is still kickin over there in MN. Glad to hear from you again. I'm still mourning the demise of my coffee, sniff...hee.

Better get going before The Saint notices I'm holed up in her with the computer

Yeah, tell me about coffee is long gone too. And fine, lovingly remembered coffee it was!
