I tried my first felting project last week. The project came from the hibernate course with Heather. I enjoyed it, but need to do something about my felting skills. It's a little bit floppy for a bowl, even one that you aren't going to be using for food. Maybe I'll have to get the yarn Heather recommends & use that next time. I really have no idea what kind of yarn I did use. It was deep in my stash, I think one of the first yarns I ever purchased! The only thing I know about it is that I did buy it in order to felt things.
I have finally reached the foot on my pair of socks. I have a goal of finishing them before the Olympics. If I don't read in my spare time, I might be able to do it. Might.
As for reading, I am ALMOST done with One Thousand Years of Solitude. I have a goal of following along with the Year in Books. To read a book each month. At one time I would have blown right by that goal. But in this season of life....I'll be happy with one at least one a month!
