Alyshia May's Birthday Bag

I made a crochet/knit combo bag for my friend's birthday. Pictures! Modeled by my little sister Sarah.

Cabled Beanie

So I finished the beanie. I learned a few things, such as a stockinette cable on a stockinette background doesn't stand out very well. Also, the top is kind of pointy because I decreased funny, but it's not too bad. Pictures!

New Project

So I was wondering when this whole focus-on-one-project-until-it's-done thing was going to wear off. Consider it worn.

I started a new project that will hopefully go pretty fast. I'm making a 2x2 ribbed beanie, my first ever hat, with some chunky yarn and ginormous needles. Pictures soon.

On a less light note, I found out my uncle died today. That makes three family members in the last two years. I'm still in a bit of shock, although I'm sure it will hit me when I go to the funeral next week. That's how it usually goes for me. He was a pretty amazing guy who enjoyed every day of his life. I'm really lucky to have had him for an uncle.

Ah, we're starting over. It must be Monday

Yes indeed, it is Monday. I started my glove project over again. I decided I don't like the way that first one turned out after all. I learned the trick of putting in a safety thread, though, so I won't have to frog the whole thing and start over. I put one in right before I started increasing for the thumb, so that should save some time should I decide I hate it all again. Which is quite possible.
