Box-O-Yarn

My yarn has arrived from KnitPicks! I'm planning felted clog slippers -- I've worn out another pair. And then there's the Pirate Queen Booty Bag purse in red and black for DD. She wanted to know why she needed a booty bag. (12-year-olds just have no sense of humor.) And I picked out some Gossamer in three colors to play with.

We've changed internet providers (my old company isn't going to be providing residential service anymore.) I must say, we switched to Embarq. It was relatively painless, less expensive, and MUCH faster. Now to work on changing over my e-mail. At least I have until the end of July.

Looks like Christmas arrived early at your house! What are your plans for the Gossamer?

Wow, nice big box of cool yarn! I haven't tried the felted clogs yet. Too many things on my plate still! Oh and you asked about my booga bags and how I attached the charms in the front. I just knitted my icord a few extra inches and made a hole in the center of the bag with my needle like I did to attach the handle and shoved both ends of a short piece through making a loop. I then just tacked the two sides down in the inside of the bag, but gave the loop a little extra length in case they wanted the charms to hang a little more. The booga bags are such an easy thing to whip up and sure make great gifts!
