Joining in with Ginny again this week.
Yesterday I sewed up this knitting bag using a pair of old jeans, some fabric from an old skirt and our handmade hemlock buttons.
On my needles I am working on another hat. The one I was knitting for myself came out well. I just love this simple pattern as it uses up bits of yarn and also I can include some more exclusive, hand dyed yarn such as this mix of greens that I bought from The Sitting Tree. Just putting a band in each hat would make the one skein last for many, many hats.
I have also cast on some Peace Fleece DK weight yarn on size six needles to make a vest from this free pattern.
Finally, I have started to read Jane Eyre, I book I have never read but am excited to enjoy the rich language and to get my brain active in the new year.
What are your handwork goals this year?
