i swear this is a knitting blog
sew, it happened again. the sewing machine was out and i had a serious need for a short needle case (yes, i've also been considering my need for a double-pointed-needle case as well, but first things first).
it went by quickly this time.
i modified the stitch 'n' bitch pattern to hold the short needles and i added the shell button and used yarn for the tie instead of ribbon. i find it more attractive.
the colors are so full of springtime! fabulous. loves it.
also, this happened.
it's an apron, in case you couldn't figure that out. i'm not even that into cooking. i do make large messes, so perhaps i was thinking of that when i made this. or not. you pick.
paula was my accomplice with all this sewing. we are bad influences on each other. i bought this book.
paula saw this pattern.
then she made these.
i know what you're thinking. you wish you were her friend so she could send you one of these awesome cards. aren't they stunning!?!?
i've been working on a secret project for tracy and it's finished! i'll be putting it in the mail this week.
i hate sewing zippers, and i forced myself to sit down and finish the darn thing. then there was the liner, and i have a new hatred for that. but it's so adorable i've forgiven it momentarily.
turns out, knitted and crocheted bags are way hot right now. i must be a fashion guru. (if you know kyle you'll get that)
i've been working on my first sock. it's growing slowly and i had taken a photo of it but it was accidentally deleted by my fat thumb. wtf thumb, why you in the way like that? i'll take a photo of it later, maybe after my attempt to turn the heel. wish me luck on that. the sock is green by the way, in case you were wondering. whoever you are.
it's late and i'm getting weirdly paranoid.
