First Felting! YAY!

Oooohhh!! Knitting!!! Ahhhh!! Entrelac!!! I can feel an addiction coming on!

I worked on my TomTom cozy pocket this weekend. I hadn't intended on felting it, until it originally turned out too small. I know that doesn't sound right, but hear me out. hehehe

I wanted to make it so all I would have to do was fold it in half and seam it. Like I said, too small. So I worked up another piece that is exactly the same and I seamed them. Then it was into the washing machine for some hot, felting action! It is now drying, so it can be used. I don't think electronics and wet wool are a good combination. I had to make my pocket match my MINI!

Oh! Did I forget to mention that Erik/Santa brought me a TomTom XL-S for Christmas? Just checked, and I did mention it. :o)Santa also bought Super Paper Mario for the Wii. Ok, so I am a little behind on the video games right now. But.... This game is friggin' awesome!! I love it!!! It a new twist on the Mario that I love!! I hear little hints of music and see visuals from previous Mario games!

Even better... Tammie (my dad's wife) got Super Mario Galaxy! When we are done with out Mario games, we are going to swap! That way we are both saving money! YAY!

And finally... Some Monday morning cuteness!!! Erik and Cooter snuggling this morning. I couldn't help taking advantage of this photo opportunity! Cooter really snuggles like this EVERY MORNING with me, after Erik leaves for work.

That knitting looks good - is that before or after felting? What does Erik think of you taking that picture?

He thought it was cute. I actually had time to go into the other room for the camera and come back to take the picture.

Super Paper Mario is awesome.

Of course I may be a bit biased - it's the only Wii game I've beaten so far! Still, it was a lot of fun and I've gone back to it a couple of times.
