I love the Noro you got for the booga bag. Be sure to post a pic when it's done!

BTW, you don't live far from me. Where do you buy your yarn?

I am in STL. The place I went last night was off Hampton. It's called Knitorious and I don't think it's been there very long. Very nice though.

I like to be able to touch things before I buy them, but I am not above going to the store to feel things and then ordering them online to get a better price!

Probably a stupid question, but... What is needle felting? :??

basically it is dry felting, with a special needle. there is a DIY show that shows how it is done....can't remember which one it was though...

Oh! Thanks Brendajos! :D

I'll have to try and look that show up; there's always something new to learn!

Hey--that's the cutest sweater, Carmell!! I think the needle felting is what makes it!! Good for you. Not that our moms don't give good advice, but we grown-up girls have to take our chances, don't we!! :lol:

ha ha! you're right Ellen... Femi.. i'm not that strong... i listen to my mom WAY to much! :( i'll get there.
thanks everybody!!
Brenda~ where did you go? i've found some LYSs but there are so far from me i only want to go if i have a reason to be in that area. i've been to the House on Dunn but they are kind of pricey and the old lady looks nervous when i show up with the kids :rollseyes:

anybody know how i would connect some small i-cords if i were to make some to close the sweater?

well you could either stitch them on or pick up some stitches and then maybe do a three needle bind off after you make the cord as long as you want. that one also screams for cute ribbon ties too....either option would be adorable.


i was a nanny in Wentzville for Frank Bommarito's ex-g/f (the stories i could tell about that man! :shock: ) and lived there for about a year. loved it and thought i would move back after i left there but then i went to CT and fell in love all over again...lol

and i have been several other places since then too...rarely let toooo much grass grow under my feet it seems! :)
