Intermission

Since I can't show you my knitting projects, these are some pics from the weekend. Jake's eyes just kill me - I don't know how Drew didn't cave to the pressure to give him the doughnut. Note the imploring paw - I almost missed that when I took the picture.

And this is from the Webelos campout. That would be Lucas wearing the first pink hat I attempted that ended up too big. He wore it the entire weekend, despite his friends making fun of him. That boy's not right...but he stands up for his convictions! (And apparently has a touch of OCD, since he sleeps with the hat and carries it around the house...)

One question for you knitters - has anyone ever done a felting project? I washed it once in hot water with clothes and dried it, but it didn't shrink or felt. I guess I'll do it a bunch of times since it's only 50% wool and see what happens. I may have to abandon that and start something else - time's running out!!!

Jake is pitiful.....I'm sending him a gift card to Krispy Kreme! And that Lucas...you gotta love his style.

I don't think you'll get shrinkage with 50% wool. You need at least 80% and more is better.

Jake says thanks. And I told Lucas I'd lengthen his sleeves on that homemade jacket, but he said he loves it just the way it is!

And wouldn't you know you can't get wool here unless its plain gray fishermans wool! I tried it again with towels and something happened, so I'll keep plugging away....
