Some recent sewing projects include a purse that I made from an old pair of jeans and a little stuffed owl!
I also taught myself how to cable when knitting. I started two scarves--the greenish one I started first (night before purple one) because the purple one required size 19 needles which I didn't think I had. (Side note, I bought them and then found I had a pair hiding at home...oh well :)). The purple scarf--Mega Cabled Scarf from Stitch DC blog--is made from Cascade Magnum which is a super bulky yarn and went super fast! I think it supposedly takes like 4-6 hours to complete if you just work continuously, but since I've been studying/working/etc it took me two days :). I don't have a finished picture at the moment, but that will come!! The green scarf is the Amy scarf and is being knitted in Berroco Vintage.
I also completed a very special blanket, but I'll post about that later after I give it to the intended person :).
I've started compiling my holiday 2010 gift list--I really just want to work on projects now and not study.....not such a good plan I know. No worries, I won't be doing that--I'm a good student! :) In fact, I've tried to convince myself not to do any sort of crafting starting October 1st until the 22nd when my test is done. That might not work, but I will definitely keep it to a minimum!
