Hope everyone had a well rested weekend. Hurricane Hannah came our way late Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, we had to brave the storm for our first Girl Scout meet-up which happened to be at a buffet.
Last week, I was finally able to put in some sewing and knitting time (and of course some baking). I have TWO wip. One, super easy but I had to put it down because it was just so HOT last week. I won't say what it is because I'm embarrassed that it's such a fast knit that I should have bound off already. The other is light, dainty and airy. Alright, it's a SHAWL. I fumbled with it a few times. But now that I'm off and running, I don't want to put it down. I've come to realize early on that it's not something I can take in the car because it requires me to read a chart, which equates to me feeling car sick. No pics to share yet.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you my latest and greatest yarn acquisition from Scout's Sock Club. I am sooo lucky to be part of her sock club. I am LOVING this colorway that goes by the name of Posa. It's beautiful shades of mauve, pink and brown.
What better way or place to display it in the fabric basket I sewed up. I gave you a sneak peek in my last blog post. The fabric basket is a tutorial courtesy of Pink Penguin.
I think what I was most excited about was that I did the box corners and they came out perfectly. I wanted to show you the inside of the bag. But I'm sure you would have thought I was nuts. I know it doesn't take much to get me excited! Anyway, back to the basket, - talk about FUN??? It's quite addicting. It's something you can do in a few hours. Now that I have the general concept/idea of how to make it, there will be definitely MORE of these in my future. In fact, I already have the fabric set aside. I can tell you that it fits a square box of Kleenex perfectly. But it only comes up halfway. The thing is, I don't know what I will do with it. Perhaps some candy for the time being
That's about all for my show and tell for now. Hopefully, I will have more the next go round.
