Walking the Dog
I made my self a new purse for Summer! I found this really cute fabric with the women walking doggies on it and I knew it had to be paired with pink! What you can't see is that it is lined in the same pink and this is the first time I've ever put pockets into a lining. Mickael probably thought I'd lost my mind when he saw me measuring cell phones and lipstick tubes, but I figured if I wanted them to fit, I'd better actually measure what I wanted to put in the pockets. I don't know if I'll do pockets again - they were a pain in the patoot - but they are convenient. I guess whether or not I do pockets again depends on if I remember what a pain they are to do. This is where my being easily distracted and not remembering things will come in handy. I made another purse just like this one for my sister in law, Mindy. Remember she had a birthday about a month ago? Yeah, I'm on top of things, I know. She lives in Dallas so I doubt that the purses will be seen together anytime soon. Mindy is one of my favorite people to victimize with things I've made. Our taste runs about the same, and while she does enough crafty things to appreciate them, she doesn't knit (I know, I know, but we all have these types in our families don't we? I mean we just keep loving them and hope that one day they will see the error of their ways).
Remember the Loganberry roving from Wednesday? Well, I've already spun up 4 1/2 ounces of it, half of what I've bought. I've got a seriously full bobbin of singles (must remember to increase take up tension next time to wind bobbin tighter) and I'll probably start the second half of it today or tomorrow. I'm loving how fast this is going! I think most of what I've spun on my wheel since I got it has been laceweight. This will be sportweight or so when its finished. I have roving for 2 sweaters waiting to be spun and I'll spin them at about this same weight so its nice to know that it goes so fast. Have a great weekend everyone!
