New Yarns :: New Projects

I've been busy knitting bowls (I now have 5 finished and ready to felt -- pictures later when they're completed). I want to knit something more useful than a felted bowl, though, so today I ordered these 3 new yarns:
I'm planning to knit all three of them into 'Booga Bags' -- one to keep and two to give away as gifts. What's a Booga Bag, you might ask? It's the really cool purse shown below, knitted up and felted. The yarn on the left will be stripey, like the bags below. The two to the right will be more mottled.Who knows -- maybe two of my faithful readers will be the happy recipient of a Birthday or Christmas Booga Bag! Anyone interested?

The next project I want to take on after the Booga Bags is a pair (or several) of French Press Slippers. These lovely little slippers were designed by Melynda Bernardi, who just happens to go to our church and just happens to be a fantastic knitter and a fantastic pattern designers. Who wouldn't want a pair of these SO CUTE little slippers?

So many projects, so little time! I'll keep you posted...

Love the purses! I'm a faithful reader (hint, hint-lol)! Can I put an order in for the one on the right???
Sounds like fun-wish I had the patience to try knitting!
Melynda does incredible work! Have you checked out her Etsy shop?
