Getting Busy

I finished one project...

and immediately cast on another. I'm making a coordinating scarf for the Tiny Triangles Fingerless gloves. It is Pimpelliese, a free pattern I found through Ravelry while looking up Baktus.

I have well over 3 skeins so I figure why let it sit around when I can put it to use. I also have this yarn in two other colors, a lovely green variegated of which there are 3 skeins and a blue variegated of which I have five, so there will be at least one more glove and scarf set.

Isaiah was over this weekend and the first question he asked on Friday was if I had his gloves made. I told him I had to check and see if I had any yarn in garnet and black of course, and his questions was, "Where in the yarn room."

I searched the stash and realized that I don't have any garnet washable yarn so I'll have to make a yarn run just for this project.

Christmas projects are in the making but they aren't knitted. These are the makings for two Cosmo bags from Amy Butler's Style Stitches.

I don't sew often but soon as I saw these I knew I had to make them for my cheerleading nieces. These bags will be large enough to carry all of their gear. I've washed and pressed the fabric and cut out my pattern pieces.

There are 12 very cute handbag and bag patterns in this book. I plan to make some of the others and "stretch" my sewing muscles once again. I'm not sure if the others will be gifts but I know there are two or three that I plan to make for myself. I'm hoping these will jump start my quilting. I have so much that I want or need to do that I'm going to have reign myself in.
