It has been awhile!

I know it has taken a long time to post, but wait untill you see what has been up!

OKAY, starting from the left. This A-maze-ing bag kinda looks like a mass of mazes. It started out as 2 mitred squares that I sewed together, then picked up the stitches along the top and made a collar of sorts. In contrasting colors of course. The I picked up stitches on the bottom and made 2 triangles and sewed thse together. I made a long strap in alternating stripes in garter stitch. The bag and strap were felted separately and sewed together with fishing line. pretty cool!!
The next bag was a simple circularly knit bag. at the right point in time, half of the stitches were cast off and the remaining stitches were knit to make the flap. Oh ya, The yarn is a combination of wool and ribbon yarn. The ribbon was used every third row. A slightly hidden talent of the 'sisters' is the button. I made this from polymer clay. First attempt- not bad. Inspired me to buy a second hand pasta machine to make more. The last is a wool waterbottle holder using Wool of the Andes and a strand of Noro Kuryeon. Added a drawstring and a pinch slide (not sure what the real name is) and a few glass beads and leather strap and Hoo-ya!
