I'm off again today for some more shopping (Olde Peddler Wools is having a sale!!!). I'm expecting Theresa and I will buy something... probably not much. (bwahahahahah!!!!).
I'm making progress on the charity auction entrelac satchel. I really need to speak to the designer of this pattern about using attatched I cord for seaming the bag together. What a royal PITA!!! I don't know what she was thinking (ya, okay, it seemed like a good idea at the time and I do like the way it looks, but I did include other techniques... yes, Lauren I could've done the "decorative whip stitch". I'm going to take that out of the pattern just so you don't continue to tease me about it... how does "a neat and even whip stitch" sound?)
So it's getting there. It's slow going, but sure does give a nice result. I think I'll look for some lining fabric while I'm out (oh and Debby: I really enjoy entrelac. Those little squares really aren't tough to do. Check out my pattern for the satchel and the step by step photos. If you can pick up stitches, purl 2 tog, ssk, and do a make one, you can do it. So basically if you knit socks with a heel flap, you can do it... and that also includes you Theresa! Some people don't like turning the work so much, but I actually like that part of it. I feel like it goes more quickly, but then I'm a short attention span knitter!).
And speaking of socks:
The Angel's Lace socks are moving along. About an inch to go before the heel flap.
That's about it, not much else to update. The sewing machine isn't back from the repair shop yet and it sounds like my back up machine needs to be oiled. I'm hoping I can do that myself... I would like to do some sewing this weekend, so we'll see!
