The peace tote is finished! phew! That was alot of work. I don't think I'm a big fan of the intarsia thing. Weaving in those ends seemed to take forever. I am thinking I may want to felt the bag additionally, what do you think??? I think it can shrink a little more. I stuffed about 10 balls of yarn in it in this pic. It's wrinkly also. I dried it over the back of one of my kitchen chairs, because I did not have enough plastic bags to fill it. So I guess I'm slightly disappointed.
What a day today was. I was going out to the post office and I forgot my husband's truck was behind me and CRASH. Yup cracked up the bag of my little car. Pretty badly. Oy. Put a nice big crack and dent in his car. My head was just not in the moment. A million thoughts swirling around. Yet another reason to start meditating again. So I had taken the day off of work for some doctor related stuff, and I took a 2 hour nap. My body is telling me to slow down. My husband is telling me to slow down. I think I am, but I guess not enough. I need a vacation, yeah, that's it. A month or so in the Carribean would help me slow down. HAHA HA. No pressure no problem mon. better start playing the lottery.

some new knitting stuff

I have been MIA. I know, but I know you can relate because your knitting your fingers away making christmas gifts too...So two of the newest things I've been working on. This is a cable bag. I'll have to try taking another pic, you can't see the cables very well , ok now you can see the cables better. I also used my sewing machine to line the bag with pretty maching fabric..anything using the sewing machine is a challenge. I have definetly been learning alot (on my own) about sewing. So I originally was only going to sew the sides because I didn't think the needle would go through the yarn and fabric, but it DID!!! No problem. easy peasey. I also completed another newsboy cap. I had the idea of including a band and small flower for something different than the norm. wow ok, blogger won't let me add another pic. I guess this is how they get you to sign up for the new version. old version doesn't work.
