School is getting ready to start next week. This week hubby has off and we are going to be out with the kids. That means no knitting or crocheting for a week, so to make up for the week lost I made me a new purse. lol I have had this one ball of yarn setting around for about a year with no ideal what I was going to do with it. (why do I always buy one skein!?) Well, this purse I found on the Coats and Clark site called Pretty Purse was the perfect choice. It took the one skein perfect.
I did have to change the hook size. The N hook was a bit too big for me so I changed it to a G and it made a much better fit. As before, the purse was lined with the fabric that you see behind it. I thought that the colors fit perfectly together and I love the tropical feel of it. Fall on the outside and the tropics on the inside.
I also ordered the Charmed Knits book from Amazon. I love this book. Yes, most of the things I can find somewhere online, but for $10.00 I can find it all in one spot any time I want it. I’m not sure what I want to make first. ( I really should finish up some WIP’s first )
Well, I guess that’s about it for right now. I did finish the scarf for my MIL, but was in such a hurry to get it all packed up to send that I didn’t even get a photo of it. I do plan to make one for my Mom ( Hi MOM ) so I’ll make sure to snap a pic of that before shipping.
I hope everyone has a great week, be safe and remember that school has started or will be starting soon so look out for the kids!!
