Progress on Knitting for the World and our Families

We've decided that Knitting for the World and our Families really needs to be "Wool for the World and our Families" as it has become quite clear that knitting is not the favorite wool art of every family member. When we changed the rules, H immediately finished up this project for her Grandmother. It is a wool scarf on which she needle-felted these beautiful flowers. Next she's going to make one for her Grandfather with a Celtic knot. My "Irish Hiking Scarf" for my Dad is almost done--Mary, the link to the pattern is in the sidebar of the blog. I've also completed a knitted totebag that is ready to be felted. I have my fingers crossed that it will work! So, progress is being made!

ps--it's a winter wonderland here today with already 4" of snow!

Love the idea of using felted and woolen fabric for your knitting for the world... I'm getting into the swing of things, and oh, there's much to do!
We were visiting in the Ferrisburg/Middlebury area (we are alums from 93 and 94)... it was beautiful, cold but not too much. Sorry we missed the snow, though we didn't have the gear for it! Surely do miss life in VT!
Can't wait to read about Christmas lists, as I have some feelings that aren't rosy too...
