we dyed eggs on friday, apparently i'm terrible at reading charts. it said, as plain as day, not to put vinegar in the pink or purple eggs. i get really anxious to do things and just jump in. well, they did this weird spotty thing and the colors didn't stick. the rest turned out really nice though.
mr. bunny asked to make a cameo in this entry. i made him last year for dave's easter basket. i ended up having to give him with no eyes and one ear. i thought that i could finish him in one day. there's a free pattern and a thread full of mr. bunny's relatives on craftster.org. he's been very appreciated and needs to be re-stuffed. i don't want to split his face open, but i may have to. he's seen better days.
since this picture, mum's noni bag has been completely felted and all that's left to do is sew on the handles and put in a lining. i guess i should throw a few pockets in there? what do you guys think? how many pockets do you ladies expect in a bag? it's looking really good!!! i'm lining it with wool felt just to make it extra sturdy, mum can be rough with things.
i've finally picked up my second sock, and i've been thinking of modifying topi from knitty.com for my next project. there's a million and one promo pictures of modest mouse floating around b/c of the new album, and in every one, one guy is wearing the coolest hat. i can't sew hats very well, but i can knit them. i want this one pretty badly. i'm thinking yellow and brown or some other lurid color combo.
(it's the one all the way to the left, with the tie in the front.)
