Those of you who saw me at Rhinebeck may have seen me working on this bright, happy, fuzzy thing that looked like bits of a dead muppet.
I'm happy to report that no muppets were harmed in the making of this project. There was that one a few years ago, but... I digress.
This project began for two reasons:
- A friend gave me a ball of Classic Elite "Phoenix" in "Pink Plume".
- I got tired of looking at the hoodie sleeve sitting around doing nothing, with the better part of two balls of Cascade 220 in that beautiful green unused.
Now, both yarns have a purpose. They're... this thing! So far it's just a big, striped rectangle, but I'm pretty sure it's decided to be a purse. A felted purse. I think. Maybe.
I may be creative, but I'm not terribly decisive sometimes.
I'm hoping that when it felts, the green stripes, being just the Cascade, will felt a little tighter than the pink stripes, which are the Cascade and the Phoenix held together, and it'll give the piece a neat ribbed effect. Whatever happens, it'll be bright and happy, which is exactly what I need now that the sun is setting before I get out of school.
Everybody have their candy ready for the little ones tomorrow?
