Has it been a week already? Wow - time flies when you are having fun!
First, before getting into the WIP stuff, I saw a post by a fellow blogger regarding his dislike of people taking their blog pictures with their cell phones. I usually do this because my phone is handy; however, I never thought the pictures were that bad. So truly, give me your honest opinion on the photos. If they are terribly distracting or not - you won't hurt my feelings. I just want to make sure everyone who chooses to come to this blog truly enjoy it, pictures included.
So, with that said - on to the WIPs!
While I'm not wanting to guess, it is hard not to. It definitely is not a hat - although wouldn't I be quite an interesting sight, strutting my stuff around in an over-zealous and baggy hat.... flopping around on my heat. Perhaps I could make a pair of dangly earrings out the extra pieces and put one on a necklace. Oh - wouldn't I be lovely!
In all actuality, I think it may be a bag, but I'm not 100%. Obviously, it is still relatively early on in he project (I think) so it could turn into anything. If it is a bag, it definitely would need lined because the bottom of the main piece has one of the flower-looking pieces in it (not sure if you can see it in the picture).
I had the Caron green yarn left over from when I frogged out the man's Christmas present last week and when I saw a small pattern booklet at Michael's for Enviro-Totes, I knew I had to get it. I grabbed it up for 3$ and headed to yarn group. I have been working on pattern #4.
Oddly enough I thought the bag was going to be square-ish from the picture, but alas - it is not square. It is definitely round.
I have put a few hours in on it and it is going pretty well. I will say I'm not exactly sure I'm going to stop at the recommended rows from the pattern for the sides. I think I want my bag to be a little taller - so I will be deviating from the pattern a wee bit (per norm).
This was a bookmark pattern I found on Ravelry: Cabled Bookmark by Lesley Raymond.
Granted, right about where the needle is there I don't know what happened (sneezed or something) and stitches were being picked up and dropped like no one's business). I did end up frogging up this piece, but up until that point, it was going pretty good.
No - I'm not ready to tackle a sweater.
uh.... uhm.... *runs away*
