A Few Friday Finishes.

Miss Vera is just loving modelling the new bag I just finished. Yes, another new bag. I just cannot help myself!

I have made this bag before and have really enjoyed it, it is a great hands free bag for travelling. AND my iPad fits in it!

While I love the previous version, the fabric is a bit busy for wearing with some outfits. This one is a bit more neutral and I added more stiffening to this one. The previous version, now that is has been used a lot, is a bit droopy. 

And here we have yet another pair of socks. This one is my first very flawed attempt at knitting two socks at a time. They are however, a good fit, are soft and comfy so I am calling it a win!

I am in the midst of binding a rather large quilt and am committed to making some progress on my Rosette four, so nothing will be cast on until we leave on the first of our two summer trips on the 30th of this month.

Friday Finishes

I keep saying, if I didn't make bags, I would never have any finishes to show.

While I was making it I kept thinking it was much larger than I expected, so she has been nicknamed Mary Poppins! 
She actually is going to be a nice size for exactly what her official name says, she is my new carry on bag for the trips we will be taking this summer. 

While technically not a finish, I have finished prepping all the hexies for Rosette four. Time to gather them up and clip each one with it mates, and get sewing! (chores first, sadly)

 Poor rosette four, feels like the ugly step-sister

I am not normally a girl who changes her mind a lot

But I could almost make another quilt from the rejects, 90% of these are from this one poor rosette. Not entirely happy with it still but I think it is going to stay in this configuration, time to start sewing! Or maybe I will change out that black and red? Oh me, oh my!

And this sock! 
Yes, it is as baggy as it looks, I wondered about that heel while I was doing it but am not experienced enough at knitting socks yet to know it was not going to be good. I probably should have gone a size smaller as well and of course as usual, I ran out of yarn at the toe. I just did not have the heart to rip it back once I realized as I was more that half way down the foot. I am hoping a good wash and block will help some, but I think learning to knit toe up socks is in my near future.
I have signed up for another sock knitting craftsy class so that should help too, I hope.
