The first is called Twister (pattern by Susan B. Anderson). I used her Spud & Chloe Sweater yarn in Grape Jelly colour. It's basically a very long skinny cowl that you wrap around your neck several times. It took 2 full skeins , so 320 yrds. WIP pic above. Finished pic below.
The second is a Booga Bag for my neice for Christmas, I modified it a bit to make it more of a drawstring purse. The knitting didn't take to long, but it took me forever to felt it and do the finishing. I used Paton's Classic Wool in a Burgundy Heather and used nearly 2 full balls which would be 446 yrds. (I had about 10gm leftover). WIP above, Finished project below.
