I can see from the voting that Sprucey Lucy is the clear winner for the name of my new sock design. And in celebration, I finished the first Sprucey Lucy sock on the train this afternoon.
Knitting on the second sock will commence soon.
Yesterday was a busy one! I was insanely busy working on a stealth project on a tight deadline, along with a few hours of badly needed housecleaning. I did take time out for lunch, though:
In the interests of full disclosure, I bit the ears off my bunny (the other one is the KOARC‘s bunny) Saturday night. Okay, I bit my bunny’s whole head off as well, right after taking the second photo. I ate the rest of him for lunch on Sunday. Nom.
I have in my hot little hands a copy of this book:
One Ball Knits: Purses, by Fatema, Khadija, and Hajera Habibur-Rahman.
This book has patterns for 20 handbags, each of which requires one ball or skein of yarn.
There is a great “Basics” section that discusses yarn weights and types, tools, and step-by-step illustrated instructions for stitches and techniques. Check out a sample page:
The purses are divided by seasons. Here’s my fave from each season.
Aren’t they cute?
