Oh my gosh, today has flown by. I had a LONG week at work and did some shopping today, a little cleaning, cooked dinner, and POOF! the day is gone!! Oh well that's what Saturdays are for!
I have a big update! I finished my knitting bag!! Well, mostly anyway. I still have to glue down the stiches to the dowels to keep them in place. I love how it came out!!
OK this pic is a little blurry but you get the idea.
So, my next big project is the phiaro scarf. I got my new yarn in that I ordered for it, YAY! I love it.....but not for this project! It really doesn't have the weight/drape that I wanted. So, I picked up some taupe (good neutral color) in an all cotton yarn that is nice, no fluffiness. I played with it last night and learned the long-tail cast-on (which I LOVE! Never going back to the knitted cast-on!!). Then I made a small swatch and practiced the 'dropped' stitches.
Dropped stitches: the top row (BO row) is a bit wonky. I did a knitwise BO, may need to try purlwise for this.
But, I'm convinced now that I can do this and this yarn will work, so I've cast-on already!!
That's all! Time for a coffee :)
