Thanks to Beth, who told me that SWS felts up nicely, I finally had success with the felted bowl. I finished knitting it, ran it through my own front-loader once and let it dry draped over a big pottery bowl we have. Then today I hand-sewed on bunches of clear, sparkly beads. Very cute.
My sister-in-law Trish likes it! It was "Siblings Weekend" here in Chicago, with Ed's sister flying in from Philadelphia and his brother, Tom, driving in from Lexington, Kentucky. We hung out, took a nice long walk around the city and lakefront, had Thai lunch at Penny's Noodles, then dinner at Ethiopian Diamond. Plus lots of just hanging out, chatting and laughing. (And Trish admired my thrifted apron, vintage linen and vintage coat collections.)
Here are the three Butlers: Edmund, Tom and Trish. What a wonderful family I've married into.
