Bagus interuptus



The Bar Harbor Shell Bag will just have to wait until I come back from Madrona. At least it dried completely in rainy cool Nuuanu. As it was drying I thought it would make a lovely bucket to have besides my knitting chair. Anything to avoid making lining, heh.

I'm looking forward to getting away from the hell hole work for awhile and dye with persimmons.

Enjoy your persimmon dyeing! I look forward to seeing what you create!

Oh I love it. Hopefully I'll be able to buy the yarn for the bag today!

I'm really eager to see the results of dyeing with persimmons too. My mother is as well!

Wow...that came out amazing. The colors looks so different than when you took your close up of it--now I can see that it IS green. It's very nice!

pretty! I love the soft blues with black. I think it's a good idea to use it as a knitting bucket. ;) Is it pretty firm to stand up by itself? That's the trouble I alsways have with felted things, they start to get floppy quickly. :o(
