oh sew distracting

the semester is nearing its end which means lots of tests, projects and papers. if i had any sense i probably would have caught up on some studying this weekend. but on wednesday this came in the mail...



oh, i love me some amy butler fabrics.

then jenny came to town with a little dog and a quilting project. we decided to sew, and i made this.



it's a knitting needle case, for my long and straight needles. i'm sew happy with the pretty colors!



i used the pattern from the stitch 'n' bitch handbook. it's pretty large, which is nice for the longer straights, but i think i need to make a miniature version for my shorter needles. ok one more picture.



yeah, it's pretty much a guarantee that i'll make another needle case. i'm going to Britex fabrics in SF this coming saturday and i'll probably pick up some goodies from there.

there has been knitting, though most of it was on a secret project. I also started a sock but it doesn't look like anything yet. just a blurb. but i've decided that i like knitting on DPNs more than circulars and here's why: people think i'm way talented when there are needles sticking out every which-way. circulars are not impressive. DPNs look dangerous, and painful and confusing. if i can tame those beasts, i must be cooler than your average granny knitter. right?

right.

i'm going to bed!

Wow, looooove those fabrics. You have to give me directions to Britex as I will be stuck in SC and nowhere near my beloved Michael Levine Fabnrics in downtown LA. :(
