It was a hot summer day and I had just finished a nalbinding project. My hands sat idle, I began to figit. I needed something, something to knit. My eyes wandered around the room and landed on the teapot. It's poor cozy was stained and worn, daily life had caught up with her. I took pity. Quickly I scanned my stash and found some olive drab wool, bought on sale, still in the ziplock bag. Oh yes, this could be it. My needles flew, the tea kettle sang and soon I had a new outfit for my precious Brown Betty. She sat patiently on her little flowered pillow and allowed me to dress her. Her spout held high, her handle sturdy and waiting, the cozy fit perfectly. She looked adorable as she posed for the photo, alas the lighting in my kitchen was not flattering so I thought she would look better in red.....delicious.

A hot medieval weekend, complete with knights in shining armor. Oh yes ladies...real knights, real armor and real record temps in Southern California....but did that stop me from nalbinding? Heck no...well I stopped a bit to watch the knights. And here are two knights having at each other on the field.....dreamy....Next is a pouch I finished in the Korgen stitch. I made a flap and added a bone button....ooooh....ahhhh....yummy.

A finnished bag in Oslo stitch and a bit of a close up of the stitch. This is my first piece in Olso, it is less dense than the Finnish stitch I usually use, tidy just the same. In yummy grape flavor too! snack time...eat it up.

Nalbinding on holiday at the sea. We went on the Aqualink...a sea going vessel...from Alamitos Bay (where there is a lovely yarn shop) to the Aquarium of the Pacific. It was a wonderful day though I got very little nalbinding done.
I love the ocean....eat some seaweed.

Yippeee and Hooorrray,
Third time is the charm. The third bag turned out just right. I embroidered on one of the ecru stripes with brown...as you can see...I have never done this before. I am pleased with the outcome. I toyed with the idea of needlefelting but...as I do not have any of the needlefelting toys and I wanted the bag done - now - I did this instead. whew... Now I can take it to work on Monday and be done with Molly's bag.
New project hungry now....eat it up.
