The FiberTrends Party Purse out of Noro Kureyon and Peacock is felted and is currently drying. Looks nice. It didn't shrink very much though, so the strap is very long. Since it's a model for the store it will give everyone an idea of what to do or not to do. The Peacock went through the hot water/agitator very nicely.

I began the FiberTrends/Lily Chin Charlotte's Easy Lace Shawl using Sockotta sock yarn. Not a difficult lace pattern to follow. A 4 row repeat. Working on Addi turbos. I may try out bamboo's as I'm having trouble with the end stitches slipping off.

I'm still having fun working at Ewe Knit Kits and Yarn. There was a discussion on Knitter's Review about the strange things we do when buying yarn. It's been fun watching the customers shop. Some lay their choices together on the floor or table, some stand in front of the mirror with yarn around their necks, and others know what they want and just grab and go. As for me, the longer I stay in a yarn shop, the more I change my mind! Good thing I now have all day.....
