Ravelry name change

I changed my name on Ravelry.....that's about the most excitement I've had all day. If you have Chosenlass listed as a friend, you'll now see JanaKay. I just felt that more people could find me if I used a variation of my real name!

I know....big whoop....

Okay for the knitting portion of the blog-

I finished my Kalahari bag, and thanks to Sherry's wonderful portable washing machine, it's felted! It looks great, I can't wait to use it. I have the straps knitted, but not felted yet. I really didn't know how long to make them, so I think once they are felted, I can decide. They really turned out nice. I think about 1/2 of the group is done with the bags, but there are quite a few less attendees than when we first started. All of the bags are really beautiful, and it is really neat to see all the color choices. I think most of us have ordered another round of Nature Spun for another bag! LOL

Happy Birthday to Me! LOL

Here are the rest of the KAL bag pics-

Hearthstone KAL

These are the last two shots from the Hearthstone KAL-I've added some others on Ravelry, and can't seem to get them uploaded here.... I only have the last row of 1/2 square triangles, trim, and handles to knit, then it all gets felted into a lovely bag! (hopefully!)

I've ordered more yarn to do another bag-this time in purples and greens. I've always loved those two colors together, and have to laugh when someone says, "you've stolen MY colors!" like they own that particular color combination. Don't get me started on egos....that's for the other blog.... :P

I have lots of 100% feltable wool that a friend gave me, so I might try another one using bigger squares and/or triangles.
