January is all about pink
I'm making myself another pair of Sweetie Pie socks, in Panda Cotton again, in the dotty Lollipops colorway. I've had this yarn for a while and keep staring at it, trying to imagine what it would look good as. Not that the socks look great in this picture, but I'm happy so far, the yarn looks much better knit up than it does in the skein.
And I've been sewing! I've really missed sewing but with all the junk I had in my sewing area, it just wasn't possible to work on anything. But now that I've purged a few tons of stuff I can get my sew on again! I'm trying my hand at project bags:
Not as hard as I thought they might be, once I figured out what I was doing. You see, about 99% of my sewing experience comes from the quilting world so somethings sewing anything 3D is confusing. Plus it has a zipper and zippers are scary. This is the first one I made, isn't the fabric fabulous?:
I played around on the second one to see what would happen and ended up with this cute mini bag:
I've learned a lot from both bags and plan to make more until I get them exactly how I want them to be. But I only have one or two zippers left so I need to make a run to Treadle at some point. Yay for a new year and new projects!
