No longer secret...

So my "secret project" was a felted Buttonhole Bag for my friend Stacy, whose birthday is tomorrow (head on over to Stacy's Plate and wish her a happy birthday!). The pattern is available at the Mason-Dixon Knitting site, and is made with Lamb's Pride Bulky on size 15 needles, so it works up pretty quickly. I gave it to her yesterday, so now you can see it too. Here's the before, pre-felted:

and here it is after felting (my first felting attempt ever, by the way):

The main color is Garnet, with Blue Magic on bottom and handles, and stripes of Pine Green and Autumn.

Oh, and at lunchtime yesterday I finished my niece's Florida footies:

Done in Classic Elite Star, size 3 dpns. They are stretchy, but I hope they'll be big enough. Her feet are a little bigger than mine - in the past she has sent her aunt hand-me-down shoes. I'm sending them off today for her birthday next week. Happy Birthday Stacy and Emma!
