I hope that everyone had as fabulous a holiday season as I did!! Apparently, I was a very good girl this year, because Santa brought me everything I wanted. Michael got me a purple iPod Nano, the entire series of Star Trek Deep Space Nine on DVD, and a set of Harmony Interchangeable circular needles. I was all kinds of nerded out over the holidays!
Aren't these needles beautiful? They're already my favorites by far!
I haven't really been working on a lot. My new position is keeping me very busy. There's a lot to learn and get used to. I had to find something quick and easy to knit with my new needles though so I chose to make some cotton dishcloths. They turned out ok. I really like the green striped ones.
here are some pictures of a bag I made as a gift. Here it is after I sewed the seams together and put the straps on, before I felted it.
Here it is after washing and drying it. See how much smaller it got?
And here it is after I embroidered a few simple little daisy stitch flowers on it. Overall, I think it turned out pretty well. I see lots of stuff I would have done differently, but it was still well received by the person I gave it to and that's what matters.
