Knitted Scarf

These aren't the size needles I used, but the bamboo
 photographs better than the aluminum ones:)

I started working on this scarf when we first moved up here and were living in the hotel, well I finally got it done a few weeks ago. I tend to start a project, then move on to other things, then pick it up again later.

I loved this color, it's Mermaid in Stitch N Bitch's Bamboo Ewe. This is a super soft yarn to work with too, I only wish they had more color choices. It hasn't gotten cold enough out to actually get to wear yet, but it seems like I won't have to wait too long.

This is also my first knitting project in a lacy type knit, this pattern is actually supposed to be leaves (which you can see if you look at it long enough). It's about 6 feet long and about 8 inches wide.

See the leaves?


Pleated Pouch

Still trying to get the motivation to work on a tutorial for my bag. Haven't been feeling so hot the last week or so. Not sure if it's just the change in weather or not. I've even been using my 'jiggly vest' like a good girl (and I hate using that thing!). Well anyways my point is that I haven't really worked on anything new, but here is one that I worked on when I was on my huge sewing kick a few weeks back...

I'd seen a cute little pouch on etsy years ago and always wanted to try and make one so when I had some extra linen fabric on hand I decided it was time to give it a whirl. Of course I just went for it without a pattern or a real plan of what I was doing. I thought it turned out really cute and have already used it as a clutch purse when I didn't want to take my bag (but I am probably biased).

I guess these don't really show the scale at all but it is 10"x5.5", big enough to fit my wallet. Not a coincidence:). Maybe one of these days I'll find someone to model some of these things for me. Just a note for all of you eagle eyes out there...yes my last few projects have been brown and yellow(gold)...I can't help it, I'm still a Wyoming girl at heart.
