My project and why it isn't

Remember that beautiful burgundy alpaca sweater I picked up thrift a few years ago? The one someone had already felted on accident? The one I was going to make into a bag for Jen? The one I then decided would make a really cool pair of slippers for me? The one that is obviously still here with nothing done to it? I got it out and decided what I was going to do...needle felting (like embroidery, but no sewing, just intricately felting w/ a barbed needle) and then make a bag for whoever. Only I can't find the barbed needles needed to needle felt. I may have to order them online. So even though I don't have a project, I have been attempting one...sort of.

  1. I think the JoAnn's in Avon has some needle felting stuff... I remember looking at it and wondering if I should pick it up for my sister. And then I didn't. I can check there, or hop over to Mass Ave Knit Shop if you'd like.

    Also, on an unrelated note, I noticed that Will (who used to work at 39) is a quarterfinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition. !!!!!!! The link:
