WIP Wednesday – 1/28/2015

WIP Wednesday at Freshly PiecedGetting it done – one piece at a time…

Manhattan Handbag In Process 1/28/2015

Manhattan Handbag
In Process

Since I finished Flowers and Baskets I’m taking a little break with this bag.  It’s been difficult.  I do not know why it’s so hard for me to follow instructions for a bag pattern but I’ve messed up more times than I can count on this one.  I’m surprised its looking as good as it looks right now.  I take each mess up in stride though and chalk it all up to a learning experience.  This is the first bag I’m attempting and I do not know the difference between fleece, decobond, and peltex… ;0  So I just look at the sizes and luckily all three were cut in completely different amounts so I could kind of tell what was what.  The next one will not be as difficult.

First Yarn Project of the year Sweet Pea Hat 1/28/2015

First Yarn Project of the year
Sweet Pea Hat

I’ve also broken out the yarn ball that I set aside last fall.  I wanted to get it done in time for Jacob to where in the winter but we all know how much crafting I did last fall (nada!)….  So, I’ve casted on and knitted 3 rounds.  Don’t tell Jacob it’s called a Sweet Pea Hat – I think he won’t wear it on principle.

Yarnbox  January shipment 1/28/2015

January shipment

And my January shipment from Yarnbox came yesterday.  It’s lovely yarn, I’ll put it aside with my other yarnbox boxes. I’m starting to build a yarn stash too….
