The picture at the end of yesterdays post was an installation piece for my Final Major Project, which was for my Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, which I completed in 2003.

I don't really feel like my words can stand alone. Maybe it's just the designer in me. I still haven't got any fresh photos, I have to knit 3 more rows to finish the scarf and I still haven't started picking up stitches on the sweater.

This bag was a simple kit I purchased as I made my return to knitting in June. I belong to a local yahoo group called Hastings Creative Media Community, and a girl working in a local Vegan Cafe called The Rooms posted on the H-C-M-C list for somebody to help start up a knitting group. We decided to call it Knit Jam, as the Rooms is a local music venue although Wednesday evening when we meet it is usually quite quiet. There are only about 6 of us so far if we all turn up. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evening every month, although I jiggled December's meetings so that our last meeting is tonight.

This bag is a very easy knit in two balls of Noro Kureyon, and then felted in the washing machine. In fact Sheryl who has learnt ot knit at the group made this in a different colourway for her second project.
