Trying out some pictures

Here is a cabled clutch that I made for a swap in the fall:

There were multiple threads talking about cabled bags that were selling for like $160 or so in L.A on craftster. I was like "that is a square. I can knit squares, even with cables, in very little time indeed! How exciting!" So with my trusty lamb's pride in pine (for some reason I LOVE that color) I whipped this up in an evening or two. Then I sewed the lining, which was a little wonky. And then I decorated it.

Here is one of a pair of mittens I knit for my sister last year for christmas:

This was the pattern that my grandmother used to knit for my mom and my aunts and uncles. I updated it with some Noro Kureyon (held together with brown Cascade 220) and my sister wears them all the time. Very sentimental. I am making another pair for my mother in a more demure spring green to match her winter coat.

I love knitting, I don't know why. These are the only things I have pictures of so far, but you can rest assured that with this blog as an excuse I will take pictures galore. Next time: yarn I bought for no apparent reason. Mmmmmm, yarn, you beat admin law every single time. Even though admin law is pretty cool, compared to what else I could be learning!

Yeah, they sell those purses at The Point. That's the knitting cafe I go to a lot. It alwyas seemed kinda silly to me that people would buy them.
