I know a while ago I mentioned the October 2006 Birthday Month Swap going on over on Craftster. Well, the person I gifted to got her package. It made it all the way to Finland! Here’s the purse I made (which I’m quite proud of):
Here’s the inside with a little pouch that attaches so it doesn’t get lost and a pocket:
Here’s a close up of the pouch:
And here it is opened:
Soon I’ll be working on one for myself with some fabric I bought last week (when I’m not busy working overtime and sleeping). When I get around to making it, I’ll post photos.
I’m working on arm armers/fingerless gloves for the above mentioned swap for another person. I’ve made up the pattern on my own and threw in a really nifty chart pattern. I am loving how they’re turning out. I finished one and am working on the second now. It should be done in a few days and once the person I’m making them for gets them, I’ll post photos on here. I’ve gotten compliments at work for how well they’re coming out, so I’m really hoping the person I’m gifting to will like them just as much.
As far as other knitting goes, I’m still not done with the second sock, but it’s because I’ve put it down and worked on the arm wamers/fingerless gloves almost exclusively. I’ve been working on the Shetland Triangle a little bit and I’m nearly done with one skein of yarn already. I love how it’s coming out.
Well… back to knitting ;o)
