St. Patrick’s Day Scarf on the Passap Machine

2 St Pat's day scarves 2stpatdayscarves

I had an order for a St. Patrick’s Day Scarf that I first posted on my blog way back. The bad thing was that I cleaned up all the files on my computer and saved to disks and flash drives and I could not find it. I first made the one on the left but the customer said it was a little busy. So I went to my blog entry and zoomed in on the picture to make larger and came up with the scarf on the right. The funny thing is that I looked at the original and I don’t know how it came out looking cute(that is where the customer saw it and contacted me) It had stitches just thrown in randomly.

However, she like the second one. I used 46 stitches and 42 rows for design. I used the shamrock picture from a dishcloth design I had. I divided it into four and then added borders. I used technique 183 and one strand of each color of 2/24.I used tension dial 2.5  and I knitted 1260 rows . The scarf is 5.5 inches wide and 66 inches long.

Felted Purse with Botanical Needle Felting and a Metal Handle

I knitted and felted this purse using the same pattern as the one in the last posting. However, while the purse was felting my husband called me and needed me to do something. When I went to check the felting it had gone much further and it resulted in a smaller purse that I think is kind of cute. I needle felted a botanical design. I put metal grommets in purse at each end between the front and back and added a metal handle. I also purchased a purse latch for closure. The next picture shows the handle better. This will be for sale in my Etsy Store.
