Knitting update

I have just ordered a copy of Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. I really want to try more sock patterns, particularly short row heels and have seen many people recommend this book, so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

The knitting of the Booga Bag is complete and I am just waiting for the next jeans wash for it to go in the machine. I'm contemplating felting it by hand but need to investigate this further - would it use less water / energy than the machine? would it be hard work? would it be as effective? hmm.

So in the meantime before my sock book is delivered, I have been working on my hooded cardie. I'm thinking of updating my percentage bars to 71% but I don't think I've actually done that much more.
