Amazon Books Came!

A whole heap of knitting books I ordered on Amazon finally came in yesterday, It took a month to come in but I am so psyched. i am slowly going through them now, I got one about working with different colours and two from the Treasury of Knitting series. I can't wait to do something with them!

Felting Madness

I have been felting recycled jumpers like a mad person. My hobby has gone from recycling sweaters for yarn to felting whatever I can get my hands on. I now have this awesome stack of beautiful felted pieces and I am trying to figure out what to do with them.

I am really a knitter and crocheter. I have never really tried my hand at sewing but I am starting to feel more and more inclined to do so as I am wanting to see some projects that progress faster. Also my house is starting to be overrun my knitted pieces quite fast and I just want to create something new! with my felted sweaters!!

So I had an idea about making this Mini Bowling Bag designed by Qazicat on craftster:

And a felted version here, by Lori from Yes I Made That:

The tutorial for this is found here: Mini Bowling Bag Tutorial

I will add this to the list of potential projects to get around to when I have the basics of sewing down and when I get the time! and no, I don't do bowling but the bag is just so awesome!
