So, I am now a little more than half way down the African felted tote bag from Bully Woolies. I love this bag. I hope I don't screw up felting it. I was working on it a little bit at the counter this morning (a very little bit; it was really busy today!) and a woman came by and admired it. We talked about knitting for a little while and then I went off to help some other customer and put the bag project away. A few minutes later the knitting lady who had admired the bag came up and bought the felted tote bag kit! She has never done two-color knitting before and I think this will be a great chance for her to learn :)
Also, just before I went off on the first knitting cruise I started knitting "Rhinebeck" from Lisa Lloyd's book, A Fine Fleece. Toward the end of the cruise I finished the socks I was knitting and picked up Rhinebeck again. At that point I only had about 2 inches done on it. I have worked on it here and there all week, and am pleased to report that I only have one and three quarters inches left before I split the body up into the back and two front parts. I think that makes it about a third done! I plan to work on it during the next knitting cruise too, and hopefully I will make some progress then.
