I'm inching closer and closer to the finish line. Today I did my last cable row and started decreasing. I hope it will go really fast now that there are fewer and fewer stitches with each row, and no annoying cables to slow everything down. I might actually get it done in time to use!
I made a bunch of progress on this hat since the last time I posted about it. In fact there's only one or two more rows to go before I start decreasing to finish it up. If I hurry I might even be able to wear it before next winter. I'm heading north for a... Continue Reading →

For reasons that nobody can explain, I decided to make this fish bag this weekend instead of working on my skulls bag. It's super cute and I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet. It was a very quick and easy project though! (Pattern here if you want to try it... Continue Reading →
