This week was slow, I spend most of my free time navigating and reading blogs instead of getting busy with my sewing machine. It wasn't all wasted time as I found this neat blog blog with a portable DVD player tote tutorial. The tote will be perfect as we do have the dual player for the car, so I made a prototype for my personal DVD player to test the pattern and give myself time to find the fabrics I want to use for the car.
I lined my tote and added a handle at the top flap instead of a strap, it's not perfect but it came out cute and will serve its purpose. Here is a shot of the back pocket, neat idea for the charger.I have also been reading about knitting socks and decided to teach myself how to make them. This is my second attempt, the first one was not bad looking but i made many mistakes and they kept haunting me. The entire sock became a ball of yarn and I started again with this new piece. I'm almost done with it, I just have to watch a gazillion youtube videos on how to do the Kitchener stitch. I just don't get it. Maybe because I knit continental style? I'm hitting a wall with this stitch, but I'll persevere.
When the sock instructions became a little confusing and I needed a break from it, I started this doily. I'm liking it, but... the drawback on this one? The pattern said one ball needed which was perfect since that was exactly what I had on hand. I made sure I used the proper size hook to obtain the gauge and I made a swatch to test my stitches. Arggg!!!! I'm done to the last few yards of crochet thread and still three or four rows to go!...
So, I have a decision to make. try to find more thread at the store? leave it as is and call it done? Is it obvious why I'm forever starting project and never finishing them? It's not my fault, really. This will be another unfinished project and to keep myself busy I'll have to start something else. What a vicious circle, but what fun!.
