Felted Bag

Here a link to a cute felted crochet bag. I haven't done this one yet but it sounds easy. I got the link from the yahoo Crochet bags group.

I haven't had too much time lately to work on anything worth while since Michelle started swim lessons and has PT. I did how ever get another dishcloth knitted up and it has the state of Ohio in it. The creator of the pattern has all 50 states and Canada.

Garterlac Dish cloth

This was a quick and simple project once my brain got the instructions and concept. I think I had a knitard moment or something when I tried it earlier. Here is the link to the Garterlac Dishcloth.

I used Peaches & Cream worsted weight cotton in Orange and I think that I'm going to have to make a few more since I like it so much.

I killed it

Monday was just a normal day UNTIL my computer locked up then began to make a beeping noise and had to be given a hard shut down. Meaning I had to turn of the power by turning off the power strip. So I turn the power back on and NOTHING. So Brian opened it up to take a look and decided that the inside needed blown out, which he did. the tried to turn it on again, STILL nothing. The downside to this is that I have knitting patterns on my computer. The upside, I can take the hard drive out and get the stuff I need off of it. I'm an hoping that what ever is wrong is a cheap fix. One of the perks to building your own computer is that you can replace parts with out voiding a warranty :) I an praying it is not the mother board but the power supply. So we'll have to see what Brian finds out when e tears it apart tonight after work.

Crochet Mini Tote

Here is a picture of the Crochet Mini Tote that I got from the Yahoo Group Crochet bags. I used Black worsted wool with a white and silver crochet thread as a carruing yarn. I did how ever change the handles from what the patterns said. I just did 11 rows of Double Crochet. In addtion I added a button to hel keep it closed.

I have made a second one for Michelle because she liked mine SO much. I also crocheted a large change purse to put my ID and things in; which fits nicely inside the bag.
