So, this is really boring. The raglan edge for my lace trim bolero. The back is done, but I got distracted with sewing. My new serger is a lot of fun. I made a couple of summer skirts (perfect for the hot weather) and a dress for dd#1. I'll try and get some pictures up. And now I'm really tempted to start one skein wonder. I mean its everywhere. I also ordered some Araucania
Nature cotton
in turquoise. Yum! Posted by Picasa

Just a mental note for myself...
I love this little tank top. And this one.

Oh oh oh.. did you see the new sock yarn from knitpicks? I love the pumpkin color!

Here's Lelah... I still need to crochet around the neckline. But I love it otherwise. I guess its been a while since I blogged. Knitting wise, I started on the the lace trim bolero from VK S/S 2005. So far so good. I'm using Jo Sharp Soho Summer light blue on size 4 needles. Posted by Picasa

My serger arrived and I finished a very simple summer skirt. I'll post a picture soon. I've been looking for simple summer skirts for a while now and boy is it a pain to go shopping for cloths. Shopping for fabric on the other hand is fun!

I finished the little purse this morning. Yipee! Its a tad bit smaller than I want, but I love it nonetheless. I might make one slightly bigger for myself and give this one for dd#1. It has a snap closure. I'm still not sure what I'm going to knit next, but I might make one of these cute wallets! Posted by Picasa

Lelah is done and on the blocking board. I love it. I got a green ribbon for the tie. I'm still deciding what to do next. Posted by Picasa Either tivoli or the isis wrap from Interweave Summer 05.

I'm really into making bags this week too. I made a tote bag for dd#2's stuff for eating out (picture later). I got some fabric yesterday and planning on making a little purse for myself (and probably a matching one for dd#1). I found wonderful instructions here. I'm putting metal snaps on the bag and was lucky enough to find the last pair at Joann's (they were put on clearance and I actually found the very last pair in one of the bins). Hopefully I can get started on the purse this weekend. I've been looking forever for the right purse, now maybe I can make one!

Today's conversation with dh:
Me: I'm going to the yarn store this afternoon, they have a sale.
DH: You just went to Joann's yesterday.
Me: Joann's is a fabric store. Yarn store sells yarn.
DH: I bet there must be a needle store, thread store,... (snicker)
Me: I wish! :)

Happy 4th!
