A Bag A Day...
Well, I did it...I made a bag yesterday after all (all that silly mentioning that I was not going to do it paid off!) OK...well, I actually cut it out last night and woke up and jumped on the sewing machine first thing this morning. The liner fabric is made from a polka-dot pillow case, and the outside is some wonderful vintage 70's material. Certainly fun and colorful for the fall.
I am also tossing around an idea for a Halloween garland made from felt, and was supposed to work on it tonight at Oh Knit at mom's, but we got all involved in a walk and dinner and eating some apple pie (good excuses huh?) I did get on the computer and look at a pattern for a knitted sock monkey hat that I really want to make for myself as well. Of course, I will need to buy quite a few supplies, and then I'll be totally ready.
We were noticing the fact that tonight, well, um, we haven't been knitting at Oh Knit in quite a while. I am personally chalking it up to the theory that we don't really feel like knitting while the weather is still so beautiful because we're just enjoying these last few days of summertime before the fall sets in. I know that I really feel like settling in more when it's colder and being inside and busy with my hands then...So, I'm just going to enjoy being where I'm at for the moment...and am truly looking forward to sitting in my mother's new snug in a bug insulated home next week! (were holding a special "I can't believe I finally got my house insulated" party then!)
