Cabled Change Purse, how do I love thee?
I love you so much that I rigged this picture to make it look like you were finished to get more people to sign up for this workshop!
I wanted to punch something out in time for my newsletter Monday, hoping people would see it and love it and sign up for the workshop class on Sunday, July 12th from 1-4pm. Of course I decided this Sunday afternoon. So I got some needles out and got to work. Out came this beautiful little bag! It will soon be lined, I got the zipper yesterday.
Here is what I’m thinking. I’m going to sew up the lining for the bags before class for everyone signed up, and even throw the zippers on there. In the pattern, though, I’ll explain how to do it. That way in class we will knit the bag and hand sew the lining with the zipper that is all ready to go into the bag! Smart, right? It would just be a pain in the ass and a waste of time to hand sew the lining, and hand sew in the zipper in class. You would have to hand sew the lining and zipper into the knit bag whether you had a machine readily available or not, so this way I’m just cutting the crap.
Interested? Email me (email@example.com) to sign up for this class! It is going to be fun and in three hours you will leave with this little purse.
I’ve also been working on the strap for my Summer Sweater. I’ve got it in my lap right now and have been picking it up while pictures are loading, reading emails, reading blogs. Whenever I’ve got even three seconds I’m punching out a couple stitches. I’ve got maybe 15 inches done, so almost half way. It’s not hard, I just want to be done! My goal is to wear this top this weekend. I think I can do it! It will be holey shirt wearing weather this weekend, and I’m going out to St Charles to spend the day with my friend Colleen. I’ve got to hit the burbs in style.
