Updates on the Things...

I finished Thing One! Last Wednesday, at the knitting meetup, Brenda showed me how to seam and make i-cord! My little GPS bag is so cute! And quite useful...
Here are some photos. As usual, they were taken with my phone. I've really become quite lazy lately. At least I pulled out the real camera this weekend... there was an otter in my pond! Woohoo! : )
Anyway, I digress.
Here they are for real:





And Thing Two? I finished a whole skein of yarn already and started a second... it's getting really long. I think I might just make it a regular scarf. I know I mentioned the Bainbridge scarf in my last post but then I realized that my scarf is way too wide...
Ah well... it's good practice! I've gotten to where I can watch tv and knit. As long as I don't care too much about the show...

Knitting group is meeting again tonight! Can't wait! I tried to teach myself to purl but I think that every once in awhile I do something weird so I end up with crossed yarn on my needle. Hmmm...

I'm dying to start on a toy. I got a book and there is a stripey snake that I might be able to do once I learn a couple more things... like purl and... increasing!
Will keep you up to date.

ps. Next blog post I'll write more about this... but I got a new job!

Can't wait to hear about the new job!

Nice job on the GPS caddy. It's cute! I just finished a scarf for Rich a few days ago, and now I have a ton of leftover yarn. I think I'll make a striped scarf with it for my sister or something. I definitely want to see the snake if/when you do it!

Word Verification: clowless. It's when you run out of clows.

Great Job! A scarf makes for great practice that's for sure :)
