Although it may seem as if I am talking about balloons, I am not.
I am referring to my newly acquired increasing skills. I still consider myself a beginner plus, but I have recently learned how to increase. And it was a joyous feeling. I made a simple black kerchief from "Stitch n' Bitch," and although there were a few mistakes, I think it's neat-o. I hope to start making more kerchiefs and eventually my market bag.
I am in love with the pattern for the market bag. I am actually more in love with the eggplant colored euro flax yarn. It's delish. Check it out on pattern works. I will be sure to post more pics here soon. I need to get my photo act together! I won't use school as an excuse either! But I am sure that once I am in the Nursing labs and classes, I will be a busy beaver. But it's okay. I will still love you my dear sweet knitting blog!
Since my last update, I have had 2 meetups. One was a general meetup, and the one tonight was a special meetup where members started making blankets for the Snuggles Project. In short, we knit blankets, mats, pads, etc. for shelter animals. It's a cause close to my heart and I can't wait to make the donations! The animals will love us! :-)
In other news, a fellow Silly Sheeper helped me set up my sewing machine. I seriously need to send her chocolate b/c I have been waiting 3 years to set this bad boy up! I am already thinking of sewing projects. The first, and perhaps most important, will be a cover for my bookcase. Why a cover for a bookcase? you ask.... well my stash is located in a new home, and I need to sew a cover so that the hubby cannot see the volume of my stash. Sooo, this in turn then means that I can do more shopping. Shopping, especially for all things fiber arts, makes my world go round, and I love the look and feel of new yarns!
So that is my goings-ons. More updates and photos to follow. So stay tuned and keep knitting!
