We're on a break!

So I decided to take a little break from knitting. I still have have loose end projects to finish up. Who was I kidding by thinking I can knit the Cable comfort throw by the 24th? Silly me, I should have known my knitting attention span is crappy. I always put projects down to start new ones and before I know it, I've got 6 things on the needle. UGH. I pray for the strength to complete one project at a time lol. Grant me the serenity! LOL.

The Two Hour Handbag!

WOOHOO!!! What do ya know! I finished the Two Hour Handbag finally (from 101 Designer one-skein wonders). It really was easy. Now I realize there was nothing to be afraid of. This project for me as a lot of firsts. My first go at circular needles, and my first felting project! Woohoo! I learned two things in one wonderful bag! Don't know if I'll keep it for myself or if I'll be gifting it! I want to try a worsted double stranded one next! I think I did a good job if i do say so myself! YAY!

WOOHOO- can you tell I'm excited!?

Finished up some loose ends this weekend

Ok so this weekend, I figured it was a good time to finish up some projects that were just about done but still sitting on the needles LOL. So I finished Katie's hat- the blue cotton hat(using the VW hat pattern). For some reason I don't think the seaming turned out too well :( .

I also bound off the two hour handbag and stitched the seam. All that is left to do for that one is to felt it. I'm a bit nervous since I've never felted anything before- and there are a couple mistakes that I'm hoping the felting process will cover up! HAHA

But most of all, I'm still trucking on the cable throw- gosh that can be boring doing the same stitches over and over! UGH! But I'm determined to finish it for Lisa! I jsut have to keep telling myself I ca n do it!

So here is the blue cotton hat: Modeled by Andrew :)
