I've begun the long anticipated felted laptop case from AlterKnits (thanks again Secret Pal!). I bought the yarn before leaving California and finally got around to using it. I decided to buy a third color (red), so I walked to the yarn store today during lunch to purchase it. I browsed in the sale bins, and couldn't resist this:
I think it will make a great Picovoli! I've even joined the knit along. I'm very excited. I started a swatch, and I think it will knit up beautifully!
I also went to my knitting group tonight (although I've only been a few times, and am not sure at what point it becomes "mine"). It was close to my house and I biked in the slight mist. While I was there, I actually started the laptop case. It looks blurry, but so much better with three colors (instead of just the orange and pink)!
