Knitting works well for me when I'm busier because it's so portable. I can pick it up easily and knit a few rows or take it with me in the car if someone else is driving, of course. And it's great to take to a hair appointment or to sit and wait in a dentist or doctor's office.
I just listed this cable knit purse for my Etsy shop.
It's lined with a cotton fabric and then I crocheted and felted the flower on the front. The yarn is Baby Alpaca. I know my things are maybe a little more expensive than others you may find on Etsy, but I use very expensive luxury quality yarn. You can really tell the difference once you start working with the better yarn.
Side note: I leave for Spokane next Thursday to be there for the new baby. I'll be staying three weeks.
This set I made for a girlfriend of my DIL's as she had a baby girl 3 weeks ago. She saw the set I made for Leanna and asked if I could make a set for her baby. She loved it and actually had professional newborn pictures taken of her baby wearing this.
I finished this sweater for myself a few months ago and I love it. It's perfect to throw over a tank top if it cools down at night or to go into a freezing grocery store or restaurant.
As you've probably noticed, my blog background and header is also new, but I don't know if I'm satisfied with it. It may change a few more times in the near future before I find something to stick with for a while. I enjoy making the changes when I have the time to fool with it. I've also updated "My Charming Creations" page (click on the tab at the top). I've sort of neglected that page for a while, so take a look if you'd like.
That's it for now. More to come.
