Ironically, when getting Elena's clothes out for yesterday, I came across this. If you look at the date, exactly one year to the DAY of when it was completed, she finally wore it (I didn't realize it til I looked up the post today myself-kinda freaky, no?). I anticipated she would give me a hard time, but didn't and wore it all day. It probably fit her better this year anyway:
Yup, we're pretty casual around here on holidays. I also have no clue why the pics have been coming out blurry lately. I have to clean the lens better and hope that works out.
As for FO's-as you may or may not recall, I had picked up 8 skeins of Lion Boucle a year or so ago (probably longer) and finally decided to stash bust a little.
I made a bag, which isn't lined yet and the bottom isn't in it yet, but here it is:
I plan to use it as a project bag. The bag took 5 skeins or so.
I also made another Chunky Brimmed Winter hat using the boucle and an L hook, since I misplaced my other hat and it's still chilly in the AM here (27 this AM)
2 skeins of the Lion Boucle and it could have been a tad smaller, but I don't care really-it serves it's purpose.
Not much else going on here-Spring Break for Elena and we're hanging today. Lots of laundry and other stuff to do and really a day of chilling out is what we need. I am working on the Shavasana Yoga Mat Bag for myself. I am using Bernat Handicrafter Cotton yarn and an I hook (two hook sizes smaller than required). I am not sure if the designer is a really tight crocheter or what yarn she used, but the other hook was way to big and honestly, I only had 4 rounds for the beginning versus the six and the bag fits fine so far. It's a pretty easy pattern (okay frogging it twice stunk for me, but I had to get it right and not too big) and I think I'll be pleased with the outcome. Who knows, maybe my yoga mat is smaller than the norm. Hopefully, I'll be done that in a day or so.
