And the snowstorm brings time to those who stitch...

hee hee hee

completed a quick project... i came across some pretty cotton yarn at the hardware store and figured i'd pick some up. It's 100% cotton and is marked "meat string" i think. probably something that butchers use to tie up packs of meat.

well it's sturdy and thick, and i imagined a little hand bag that would look great in this color:



not sure if i want to line it. being that it's so sturdy, i don't think it will gather and stretch like the acrylic bag i had. of course there are problems with it... but i'm still learning right? at least its functional. ^_^

And now... some sweater progress:




matching the tank straps, i started new rows and decreased just at the underarm. you can see it a little on the first picture. i've included a close up so you can see the different stiches. it's almost seamless, yet it has some character.

hopefully, i'll have this done before the snow melts. hee hee.
