Sunday Snapshot

Just working on a Secret Santa Project. Hopefully my person will be very excited about receiving this super cute (and functional!) yoga bag as a gift. I'm hoping it knits up quickly as my deadline is fast approaching. The yarn is Knit Picks Cotlin in Creme Brulee. It might look familiar because I used it in this sweater (and still had a few skeins in my stash).

Recently I've decided to frog it (rip it all out) and re-knit it. As my first sweater there are a few things I want to change and definitely a lot I've learned since I first made it. It has been sitting on my shelf unworn for almost a year. I can't bear to part with it (it is my first sweater!) but I'm tired of not wearing it. So, here's to a second chances and lots and lots of knitting.

Sunday Snapshot: Tuesday Edition

On Saturday I took a workshop from Allyson of  Sweatshop of Love fame at the Knitting Workshop. I learned how to make a half fabric/half crocheted infinity scarf. I've been so busy with it since I learned on Saturday I haven't had time for anything else! Okay, that might not be entirely true, I may have a selfish sweater lurking on my needles somewhere close by, but more on that later.

This beauty is going to be a gift for a lovely someone for Christmas. I felt like it was appropriate to photograph it on my decidedly holiday sheets! Made out of equal parts fabric and crochet (although you could alter the crochet into knit like in this project) this sucker is already half done from the start thanks to the inclusion of fabric. I love how quickly this is flying by and it makes a great option for all of those last minute holidays gifts sure to pop up.
