Skull & Crossbones Tote Felted

I was right to worry about the twisted stitches from the back showing, but partway into felting I used single stranded yarn to do a little ladder stitch to tighten up some of the gaps and not too much of the contrast color can be seen through now. Some of the stitch definition from the white still shows, but the black is completely felted with an occassional ribbed look where you can make out vertical columns of what were stitches.

I'll post pics, but you have to excuse their poor quality, as my camera phone is much less than ideal for all matters of quality, detail, color, exposure or focus (it does do an excellent job at forming perfectly rectangular blurry images however).




In other news my week looked like this:
Last Wednesday= haircut (slightly longer than shown in front--I had it tucked behind my ear)


Last Thursday= My car being hit while in a parking lot


Today = A 40 degree shift in weather--to a freak Mid March snowstorm
