Well, I did it. I finally finished the afghan. The ruffles took longer than the whole afghan, but there it is.
And then, I moved on and worked on this, which turned out pretty cool, if I do say so myself. In a few words, you make a rectangle with Lion Brand Thick and Quick, then another, the same size. Add the handles, sew the sides, sew the bottom, and VOILA! Purse.
I did find putting the handles on to be a bit tedious, but the result is quite lovely!
Ok, the pic has to wait until the email comes in, because I didn't take the picture with the camera on my Ipad. I took it on my Android, and so have to email it to myself. Silly stuff really. Ah, there we go..
I'm pretty happy with this. There are people who want to take the class, too. I'm really sorry that I didn't finish it sooner, because it's a classy bag.
I've been watching pins on Pinterest, and repinning my heart out. Everyone has dishes that look so good, and crafts that make you say "Oh, my GOD, why didn't I think of that?" It's a pretty great place. The food's good. The ideas are spectacular. I can't get enough.
In the meanwhile I created several more scrunchies, and I've sold a few to friends. Then I have to make one in Spartan colors--maybe make it a trend class? It's in the works, anyway. Just have to make one up tonight and take it in Monday.
I have to decide what's for dinner, and stop in town to pick it up. I'm thinking that maybe Quizno's would be really good. I haven't been there in a long while. Maybe that's what I'll do. First I have to pick up chips and dip from Meijer's. Ah, the things I must go through.
Tomorrow is the Allegan Fiber Festival, and for sure and certain, I will be there or be square. I'll spend the entire day spinning with friends. It will be fun. I can hardly wait.
I'll try to take pictures, but you know how I am when I go places. I try to travel light, wherever I go, and that usually means no phone and no Ipad. It's busy, even when I do take my phone.
There was something else I wanted to tell you, but it's slipped my mind. If I think of it, I'll let you know.
Next project is a bottle green heavy sweater with lots of cables in it. It's in the Fall Vogue magazine. The yarn is at my knit night place, and I have the magazine on my Ipad. This means, all I have to do is get my needles and go, and I can get busy swatching. Can't wait, but I'll have to.
Have a nice weekend, everyone. Enjoy the beautiful weather.
