Finished something new

I actually finished this, I think two weeks ago, but forgot to post it. Whoops! I was very proud of the blanket stitch work that I did when stitching in the purse liner. I did a happy dance because of that. :D


It is for my sister for her 22nd b-day on Aug. 10th. :D I used Bethany's pattern and you can find it HERE. It is very easy and fairly quick if you have the time to sit down and focus on it, unlike me who was trying to do three or four different things at one time. LOL! I have been bouncing from knitting needles to crochet hooks to looms and then back again for about a week or so. I have a lacy keyhole scarf on my needles, just finished up with three travel/neck pillows that I crocheted, and am currently working on my first ever sock on my DALooms EFG Sock Loom while the knitting tote I am designing is on my Kiss Loom. Does that sound CADD (Crafty Attention Deficit Disorder) to you? Hahaha!
Ya'll don't forget that the Simple Sweater class on the Kiss Loom starts tomorrow in the Loom Class and lasts for three weeks. Here is the one that I made from the pattern at the beginning of May. :D
It was literally a simple sweater. The only challenging thing was that I was making alterations to the arm length and shortened the body of it. I didn't do too hot with picking up the stitches around the collar, but that is OK. It is still my favorite comfy sweater! :D Hope that everyone taking that class has fun and gains confidence in themselves. :)

You really did a marvelous job on those projects...especially the baggie! ;) ...and you have every right to be proud of that blanket-stitched-in liner. :)

I super love that purse. It makes me want to become a purse snatcher, lol out loud. And the sweater is so pretty. Great job!

A well-written post. Agree with you. You can learn more on how to cure attention deficit disorder at www.attention-deficit-disorder.net. It may take quite some time to cure, but it's definitely a good try.
