Since I have been overcome by my knitting passion I had began to have issues of where to put my projects and how to transport them to various places that I can sit and knit. (Every friggin spare moment that I have.)
Last holiday, my partner gave me a soft tool bag by "Craftsman" and it came with a small bag inside the larger bag. I was rushing around trying to find a bag and I happened to grab the tool bag by accident.
All I have to say is it worked out to my advantage. It s great bag to through a knitting book in alone with the appropriate tools for the project and away I go.

Here is my latest project. These were felted last Saturday and took until today (Monday here in Oz) to dry. The brown ones have turned out the better pair and the grey ones will have to have another turn at the felting process. They were inadvertently left in the washer for a full cycle including cold rinses and fast spin as we had some visitors drop in and I promptly forgot them. The full cycle seems to have no adverse effects. Anyone else done this????
They are very comfy and are great to walk in but just a bit slippery on our polished floors.

I made these with some super bulky Reynolds Lopi that I bought a while ago (at half price) and hadn't found a use for. Because of it's weight I used it single stranded. I've felted the regular bulky Reynolds Lopi many times with great results and I thought I would get the same percent of shrinkage with this, but it looks like I was incorrect. They took about ten passes through the wash and one pass through the dryer to get them about as shrunken down as they're going to get and although made for a men's size 11 are more likely to fit a size 13 to 15. I didn't put much effort into shaping them while wet because I was disappointed about the size, but I think I still like the way they turned out, and they will make a nice present for my brother who's feet should fit in them perfectly. I just need to make another pair for his wife!
