Progress and photos

Finally, I remembered to take some photos in the hours of daylight today. Here it is, the front piece of Orangina, completed (I added about 1.5" to the length as it seemed a bit short for my liking) and 5" of the back piece. A bit more progress has been made since the photo was taken. FYI, I'm knitting this in Rowan Linen Drape shade 844 and I'm knitting it in the smallest size. I thought it was going to be big, but I'm glad I checked out the postings and comments on SKC . I think it should fit just fine. Fingers crossed. I might even finish it in time for my trip to KL!!!

Next up - the BoogaJ Kureyon bag which I knitted on holiday but only just managed to felt in the last few days. Firstly, tried the hand felting method. But that wasn't very successful. So, I bunged it into the washing machine, on the hottest setting for 15 minutes with an old cord bag and voila! Boy, does it shrink! I'm super pleased with the results! I'm going to gift it to one of my sisters when I go to KL.That's all for now. More progress soon.

Orangina is absolutely too delicate for that name. Your color and needlework is exquisite. Booga bags are fun eh? The wear forever!
