Whew, that was a quick week. The new job is great so far, the commute not so bad. We’ll see what happens with that on Tuesday though when all the students go back to school and the volume of humans jumps up exponentially.
On the August UFO front, I sort of didn’t do fabulous but I did get some stuff done.
First up, Larger Than Life Bag. Crochet & assembly is complete I just need to find her a nice fabric and make the lining. I might hit the fabric store this weekend, we’ll see. I was going to use drapery ties for handles but that would be too shiny and posh so I’m going to hit the thrift store and find and old leather purse or bag that I can cannibalize for the handles. If that doesn’t work I’ll see if I can find two old narrow leather belts, or one wide one and make it into two. I want it to be hippie dippy and I think old leather will be just the ticket.
I really like the striped gusset too. Makes me happy.
Poppy didn’t quite get finished but pretty darn close. I finished the second sleeve and really liked it so I ripped back the bad one and have re-knit 1/2 of it. Won’t be long now. I’m MUCH happier with it now.
The Monkey socks for Vanessa, so sad. I’ve finished one repeat of the pattern on the first sock. I suck! They are next on my hit-list though so don’t despair too much ‘Ness. Maybe for Hallowe’en?
And, seeing as it’s September and completely acceptable to talk about hockey again, my boy got re-signed for another season! Whoot whoot! That almost makes up for the fact that the new uniforms are really not very good. I was sooooooo hoping that orca crest would be gone, but no. Oh well, at least they are back in the traditional colours.
