Our digital camera did a great job of capturing all that pretty orange/red sand in Sedona, Escalante, and Lake Powell last month... literally. I can't get the sand back out of the camera and the camera lens won't open and close properly, hence the camera won't take any more pictures. I have gotten my hands on a replacement camera, so here are some pictures of my latest problem, uhhh, project.
I'm working on my second felted purse. I found this pattern which reminded me of a purse I bought many years ago in Peru which was absolutely the perfect size for me. At some point, the Peruvian purse wore out, and I've been searching for the perfect purse ever since. As I've been knitting this new purse, I've been worried about the size since it looks huge (even given that it will shrink when felted) compare with the purse that I now carry which I think is already too big.
With 3 strikes against it, I'm tempted to pull the whole thing out and start over. Now I'm used to ripping out my projects several times before finishing, but somehow it seems tougher this time because I was so close to the end. On the bright side... the slower I knit, the fewer projects I can do and the less yarn I need to buy. Maybe I should just go back to cross-stitch.
