guess what I’m making now!

I decided to put all those other projects on hold.

Why?

Who knows.

What I do know is that it is finally SPRING! Which means that farmer markets are going to get rolling. And how can I shop at the fm if I don’t have a beautiful new bag to put my purchases in?

So I have been working on that. It is taking FOR-EV-ER. All those chains…I tried to knit one and kept failing. I seem to do better with crochet…or maybe I’m just that out of practice with knitting. 😦  Anyway, I’ll have pictures of the bag soon…as long as I don’t see any new shiny things.

I taught myself tunisian crochet!

Unfortunately, my first project incorporating this new knowledge…didn’t turn out quite right. Somewhere along the middle I increased my tension and so my panel is wide on the ends and thinner in the middle. I have no idea how to fix this…so it’s basically back to the drawing board.

Le Sigh.

On a more upbeat note:  TC is really easy! (Seriously buy yourself a TC/Afghan hook and YouTube it) The only difficult part is multiple color changing midway through a pass…Oh and weaving in ALL those ends! I felt like I was never going to get done! Also, I’m glad that I learned this lesson on a small scale project. I plan on doing a blanket soon and I would have been eating-out-of-the-ice-cream-container-upset if I realized halfway through that my tension was off!

Once I get over my disappointment and terrible sleep schedule I’ll give my tc kindle cozy another try.
