I haven't touched my cardigan; newer projects beckon.
Another felted bag. This one is in Charcoal Lambs Pride worsted. I am planning on shaping it with a flair towards the top and ending with either an interesting ruffle from Knitting on the Edge or Fun Fur (Black).  I am learning towards the trim idea and
not fun fur for such a large bag. So far I've got almost two skeins knitted up and will probably need a third. This is good car knitting for my morning and evening commute or occasional lunch time knitting.

I also started the famous Birch. What took me so long. Oh I forgot! I think I look like a Russian peasant woman in shawls.  To counteract this effect I am making a rectangular version...more like a stole. This means that every row will be the same number of stitches and that this project will take while. So far I have done 20 rows. I am using Rowan Kid Silk Haze in Villian (a chocolate brown...what? brown? again? I prefer brown to black because it makes me look less ashen). No photos because of the multitude that are already out there.
