Ah what a great Friday. I have been a little busy getting on the crochet wagon after the big move. Right now we have a lot of boxes BUT I have the dining room table put together and in place AND we have furniture. I’m very excited about the new furniture but I know it’s gonna be hard with the dog. I figure soon I will need to begin the table runner for the table – and that is on my year of projects list too…. so I’ll be taking out 2 birds with 1 stone.
In the words of London Tipton… YAY ME
(I figure only the parents of children will know who London is *laughs*)
Unfortunately, I was not in a position to work on and take pictures of my mystery project due to the move; however, I was able to work on two clues last weekend and finish the item which did turn out to be a beach bag.
I definitely think the individuals who used multiple colors for the CAL project probably have a more vivid, beach-friendly bag. I stuck with a single color and while I’m pleased with how it turned out, I think if I made it again in the future, I’d work it in multiple colors. Especially with the applique flowers that were added just so you could see them better.
So what do you think? Think it turned out ok?
For the last couple weeks I have had an urge to make a small wrist bag. I wear slacks to work and usually those slacks have no pockets. This drives me insane!
To work I only need to take my keys, my cell phone, my ipod, and my badge. I have to carry it in my hand unless I take my lunch… so I started thinking of a cool pattern that would look good, work up fast and serve the purpose. I knew it would have to be more than one pocket because I have a slide phone and I do not want the face of the phone to get scratched up by my keys.
This is still a work in progress as far as the pattern is concerned, but these are the images from the first worked up bag. I like it, but I have got some new yarn to see if I can’t dumb the size down a little bit and address the extremely puffy nature of the bag.
So that is all I have for my Finished Object Friday. I was hoping to be able to share the simple cabled scarf I’m working on but alas, it is not done. I worked on it last night and added a few inches, but I’m thinking I’m going to have to add a second ball of the wool to make it good and long. Which – means I get to learn a new knitting skill soon: adding the new ball in. I’m guessing tying a knot is out of the question. *laughs* If you have a good knitting resource that can show me, do let me know in the comments!
