Thanksgiving and projects.

Hope Everyone out there had as wonderful a Thanksgiving as I did! :)
We got to spend time with Family and Friends!
I've Made quite a few things in the past few months. 
I have a few pictures and i'll get up some more later on.
Starting with.. My Slippers! There awesome! and where super simple to make.
And I've not had much experience with felting, but these worked great.

I also made this hat from a pattern i found in 
"One-Skein Wonders Luxury yarns"

And i spun the yarn myself! 
It's a lace weight and the fiber was Merino and something else.. 
someone gave it to me.. this picture doesn't do the color justice... :)

And I've knitted a sweater and put buttons on another one i made last year.. 
I'm now working on another sweater out of Lion Brand Yarn.. 
not my favorite yarn but there colors are so pretty! 
and i'm almost done with a queen sized afghan i started about a week and a half ago. 
and it's almost done! this will have been the quickest afghan I've ever made :) 
here's the blog i found the pattern on.
and here's the one she made.
Mine has a black background

I've also knitted and felted a bag out of this pattern.
little saddle bag, from Knit and Felt Bags book

I really like it! but i ran out of the yarn i was using, so i think i'll make my strap out of a piece of leather or something like that.
