My plan for this yarn is to make a felted bag. This isn't enough for the size bag I want, so I may add a pinkish shade of wool as stripes.
Here's a picture of a spontaneous purchase I made while on my Olathe trip. Strawberry flip-flops. Those who know me well know that I can't stand flip-flops. I like me feet to be completely covered and protected, as a general rule. But they had strawberries on them! How could I resist?
I certainly won't be wearing them to work. I'll probably just wear them around the house, to take the garbage out, and maybe a quick run to the store.

According to SKS, I am now a sock knitter. Woohoo! I have measured my feet, chosen my needles and yarn, and cast on for my first 'real' sock.
I had a good time in Olathe. Lots of laughing happened. My sister took me to The Studio in Kansas City. They are very friendly there. I bought some blue-green Cascade 220 wool there that I will make something to be felted with. We went to another yarn shop (can't remember the name) that I wasn't very impressed with. By the time we got to the one in Olathe, it was closed. I'll just have to get up there again. Now, my sister is not a knitter, but she was very impressed with what she saw in the stores. Both of my nieces know how to knit. I helped the younger one a little bit.
