I joined a group on Ravelry-the project bag swap group. I was paired with a couple of women. One, Qmama on Ravelry, has already delivered my bag. I love project bags and this one is adorable. I love it. Qmama did an excellent job in sewing the bag and in choosing the fabric. Check out the project bag:
I also received some stitch markers, a wash and a zippered pouch. THANK YOU again to Qmama!
I am impressed with the zippered pouch. My sewing skills are rudimentary. I’ve made a few bags and quite a few skirts. Although the skirts were years ago, when I was in high school and college, and my sister and I decided we could conquer the A-line skirt pattern. We made a ton of those skirts. We wore them for a while too. I have no idea where any of those skirts ended up. Probably goodwill.
I'll post pictures of the bags that I made for my swap-ee in a few weeks. I don’t want to ruin the surprise if she happens upon my blog.
I’ve finished one of my Vegas socks. I should have paid more attention to the knitters on Ravelry that said the pattern had issues. I did make sure to have enough stitches to pick up along the heel flap. The heel itself is too narrow-too narrow by at least 8 stitches.
It’s not an issue for wearing the socks around the house-but inside shoes it would annoy and most likely cause blisters. So if you try this pattern out-adjust the heel accordingly. I find the toe closure to work just perfectly.
I’m working on finishing the second sock and am working on 12 x 12 inch squares for my Twisted Stitchers meetup group square swap. Our goal is to swap a square with eleven other members and then sew the squares together for a sampler blanket. Deadline is Christmas. I can’t wait to see what we can create. So far only one member has completed her squares. I’ve got one down and 11 more to go.
