Last weekend I finished a couple of project bags, these ones with zippers. One was made quite tall in order to fit long straight knitting needles.
This weekend I also managed to write a simple sewing pattern so that you can make your own project bag. I have not written a pattern in quite a while and I had forgotten how much I enjoy it. The pattern is for a simple drawstring bag, but there is no crazy measuring involved in order to create a channel for the ties, I made it as simple as possible.
This afternoon I’ve added six project bags to the GMHN Knits Etsy Shop. I made five drawstring bags and two zippered boxy pouches. You’ll notice one of the drawstring bags is missing from the shop and the picture is missing, and this is because it’ll be included in a giveaway to come sometime in the near future, so stay tuned for that!
I finished a second pair of mittens! This pair which much more quickly. My daughter wanted the tops to be different, so I went with that.
I also finally managed to finish the Nurmilintu Shawl. It’s smaller than I expected but I do like it and since it’s a Christmas gift, I hope the recipient likes it as well.
Currently on my needles is “Flax” by Tin Can Knits. It’s a free sweater pattern on Ravelry. This is my first sweater and I’ve already had to rip back and start over!! But now I am back on track. I’m making the 8-10 year old size for my daughter, Hannah. Figured I should probably start small with my first sweater.
I know it’s not much right now but I’m pretty excited about it. I also have another Snowflake Beanie on my needles, which I generally work on when it’s slow at work, because I am familiar with this pattern and it’s kind of hard to mess it up.
It’s actually farther than that, but I haven’t taken a photo lately. The last two times I made this hat I finished in a day, so it’s goes pretty quickly if you sit and actually work on it!
I also currently have a pair of socks on the needles. Well one sock… Okay, one sock toe.
I think that’s about it for this week. I added some new project keepers to my Etsy shop. There are also a few project bags still available, I will be making more of those soon though, first chance I get.
