This poncho was so easy and quick to knit up. I love it. I used Bernat Cottontots in "sweet apricot". The yarn is soooooo soft. The pattern is from Domestic Affairs blog. It took one full 4oz ball. LOVE IT!!! This pattern would make nice gifts. My daughter however was not a very willing participant in trying it on. It took alot of bribing, pleading, begging...threatening..lol. I finally got it over her head and got a half decent picture.

Dishcloths and kitty toys

I am going to have a yard sale at the end of the month and thought that it would be fun to make it a craft/yard sale. Nothing fancy.....just some dishcloths and cat toys. But after making the kitty toys I'm not sure if I want to sell them!! Too cute! And my kitty's love them. I dont know if I'll even get as many dishcloths made as I wanted to either. What I'm really doing is trying to clean out my stash. Any odds here and there I thought would good to use up.....and hey, why not make a bit of cash from it all to buy new stash!!?? Sounded like a good plan at the time. It just gets boring making dishcloth after dishcloth.

So yesterday I bought out the sewing machine to finish up Poster boy. And yesterday the sewing machine had to get taken into town to get fixedl. What a time I had. I've only used the machine like 3 times since I got it at christmas. Since sewing through the wool was a bit difficult (thick) I was going to try to sew it with the "feed dogs" down. Those are the feet under the needle that moves the material through. Anyways.....didn't work. So I tried to put the dogs back up and they wouldn't lock into place. It was a sad moment calling Sears and making an appointment for it to get fixed. I just hope it doesn't take forever to get back. It always makes me nervous sending stuff out to get fixed. I'm always afraid its going to either not come back or come back worst off than when I sent it. Crazy thoughts huh.

So there will be no finished pictures of the Poster Boy bag this week. Maybe next!!

Poster Boy

So I haven't been around a whole lot but that's not to say I haven't been busy!! My sister had requested for me to make her a Posterboy Bag. It is my first project using more than one color. SCARY!! Actually I'm glad I did it because I learned a lot. It was getting pretty scary nearing the end of strap #2, my yarn was winding away to nothing and I was certain that I would not have enough to finish. Let me tell ya, it was a close one!! Anyways, I'll work on putting this bad boy together and once I'm done I'll post another picture!
