Idol Hands and Hot Weather
Over the last week I have been working on a Starling Bag which was created by the wondeful Future Girl. I'd developed a bad habit of putting small projects in plastic bags to carry them around in, but had recently almost thrown out one! So I decided that a small project bag was inorder - ironically I did carry this around in a plastic bag while I was owrking on it.
It took me a little over a week from start to finish and that was only working on it at work during my tea break (it's amazing how long a 10 minute tea break can last for, shh). It also brought all the closet knitters and crocheters out, and there was even interest from non-yarnies! We were all quite pleased, me especially, when it was finished on our last day before the 2 week Christmas break.
Attic24. With 2 whole weeks off work for the holidays, I needed to find something to occupy myself. The only stipulation was that it needed to be small-ish - no afghans laying over me to cause heat stroke in what will most likely be a stinking hot Christmas.
I stopped by a Salvation Army store on the way home the other day and picked up the perfect jumper to get the ball rolling for this project.
Pics of the recycled jumper and granny cushion to follow once there is a little more done.
Until next time, Cheers!
