knitting occurred this M.emorial D.ay weekend!
I decided to do a quick and cute purse since I've been sitting on this cute purse handle from last year
So I eagerly started knitting again since I've been hooking so much,
with some of my fav yarn of couse! :o)
and even tried a new techniqueDouble Knitting!!!! I really enjoy it!! Even though I am still fumbling thru on how to exactly do the increases and decreases...suggestions/help anyone??
Well as fun and challenging as this project has been..it has not been going well :o(
I first wasted 2 hours of my knitting life to discover what was frogged I really was doing correctly...sigh. So I started again.
And then realized my purse handle was NOT going to match up with my knitting
DOH!!!! Too big (and too thick to fit b/c of the double knitting)! Ugh!
.....Soooooo I will have to order a new handle, which completely defeats the purpose of having a free handle *rolls eyes* As you can see I refuse to start over, but also refuse to keep knitting right now....back to crocheting!!!
That darn baby blanket which I am sick of working on now....it is big enough so gonna end it soon. Besides the baby shower is this upcoming Saturday, so that will be a wrap either way!
Despite the start of my knitting coming back and the start of my crochet fever now wearing off...
It is the unofficial start of summer! You really can't kick off a M.emorial D.ay right unless you have some of this
I have waaaaay too much of it
the lid won't even fit on top of this bowl...whew!
Hope everyone is having a nice holiday. And I definitely want to take a moment to honor all the soldiers who have put their life on the line for our country protection and my freedom!!!
