Busy as a Bumblebee
Even though we've been doing so much travelling lately, I've managed to get quite a lot of knitting done. I have 6 finished projects, two of which I will write about today and one which I have to keep secret until Christmas. And I also have another two projects which I will finish this week (not to mention my icarus shawl and a new cardigan that I started last week)!
The first finished project is a cardigan I knit back in September for my niece Charlotte. It was only just recently finished since it sat around for almost 2 months waiting for me to attach a button!
Pattern: Ribbed Jacket from the book "Special Knits" by Debbie Bliss.
Yarn: Knit Picks "Swish Superwash" (100% Superwash Wool) in Bubblegum
The pattern was easy to follow and I LOVED that it only had two seams! I would definitely knit this again.
My second finished project is a felted purse/make-up bag that I made for my cousin and it is my own pattern (very easy)!!! I had intended for it to be a make-up bag but it ended up a bit wider than I had anticipated. I'm really very happy with it though - I think it's cute!
Pattern: Made it up as I went along!
Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun worsted weight (100% Wool) in Charcoal.
So there you have it - two finished projects! We have a short work week this week because of Thanksgiving, so hopefully I will be able to update you with some more finished projects and photos of our trip to Carlsbad Caverns and Arizona.
