Rather than fall shopping, I am doing some fall making! Adding the fall colors to my wardrobe helps me feel like autumn is really just around the corner, even though temps are still reaching 90° during the day. Last week was so nice and cool that I hoped autumn really had come, but I knew it was too good to be true. 🙂
FO: Rib and Cable Socks
I finished these warm autumn toned socks last week, but did not have time to post pics until today.
Pattern: Rib and Cable Socks from Interweave Knits, Fall 2005. I love this pattern because it fits so well. I have already started another pair!
Yarn: Superwash Merino in Central Park from Cherry Blossom Fibers
FO: Frenchy Bag
Having mastered my little sock project bag, I decided to branch out into a more complex sewing project. I picked up Amy Butler’s Frenchy Bag pattern at my local fabric shop. I had no idea this project would have me cut out no less than 22 pieces of fabric/interfacing…lol!
But after an evening of diligence that kept me up well after my bedtime, I finished the bag – complete with sew-in interfacing (I found that I prefer the fusible kind), lining, pockets, and magnetic clasp.
Now I think I may be ready to branch out a bit on my own. I like the general idea of the bag, but I want to redesign it and make some changes…so I will have to create new pattern pieces from scratch. We shall see how this goes.
I know I promised a big announcement, but said announcement is not yet ready to be announced. Sorry to keep stalling…
