On to the next

I figured out what I did wrong on the sweater. I must have put the thing down in the middle of a row, which I know better than to do, and when I picked it up again I turned around the work, which is an interesting way to do a vertical decrease--but definitely not what I wanted to do. It's still sitting in the corner frogged back to where I changed yarns, and I don't want to look at it. I need to reneedle it, but I don't care. I want to do a few smaller projects before I come back to that one, despite the fact that it looks pretty good on the whole. I need to better understand the yarn, I think.

At any rate, so today I went by AC Moore and found some nifty inexpensive merino and decided to try my hand at felting. I now have a small trivet, and I'm about to embark on some slippers. No, I take that back; I'm five rows into the slippers.

I got some blue and grey and lime green in the wool, and some rose and light grey acrylic... just be fun to just play with knitting for a while and then come back to the hoodie. I swear, pictures soon, if anyone cares..
