I did it!!

Originally uploaded by maxandlindsey

Here is the final knitting project bag that I sewed. I made it a little wider than you typically find to help hold straight needles and more yarn. Also at the top the seam is actually a leaf vine that turned out pretty awesome. There are a couple things I am going to change on the next one but it's a good start. Hopefully more to come.... and hopefully they all sell!

A Sewing Kind of Morning..

So this morning I woke up early for some ridiculous reason so I decided to get some sewing done. I finished a fuzzy blanket for my new little sister from Big Brothers Big Sisters, which has peace signs all over it as she requested. Then out of curiousity I started working on knitting project bags to sell....

We woke up to this yesterday after an all night snowfall. Not to mention we lost power for about 8 hours and schools were closed. It was beautiful!

Pink Waffles

Just finished this pink waffle hat for Florence who paid me to knit it for her. The yarn is called Sublime and has silk and cashmere in it. So soft she may never take it off!

A Felted Purse...

I looked and looked and really couldn't find anything I liked when I was thinking about buying a new purse. So the next best thing? Make it yourself! It's going pretty fast so hopefully by next week I'll be showing off a new felted bag.

My Newest Spinning Adventure

So this was finished last night, a beautiful green yarn that I spun up. I'm starting to realize that I actually need to start knitting with some of this yarn I'm spinning. Then you really get to see what it looks like!
