In order to try to get one finished for next week, I'm going to concentrate on two projects. One is the Loopy Monthly Mixer for September:
I'm making a Liesl using yarn from The Yarn Vault. It's Azul Profundo on Malabrigo Rios. I know I purchased this yarn from Gauge in Austin, Texas during the Hill Country Yarn Crawl. I'm not sure of the year, but I know it was before 2011 because I logged it into my Ravelry stash page in January of 2011.
I'm also working on the toy assignment for Loopy Academy:
As you can tell, I haven't gotten too much further than the last time I posted a picture. I need to get on the good foot!
On the sewing front, I am working on some Christmas projects. I won't talk about them until after Christmas. I also have some fabric on deck to make some things. (Of course I do!)
I realize it is already October 19th, but I still haven't cast on a pair of socks for Socktober. I already know what yarn I want to use. It's another skein from The Yarn Vault.
I want to make a Halloween-themed drawstring bag for the October Monthly Mixer and my Socktober socks can live in it. Isn't the fabric cute?
One of the Loopy Academy projects is a zippered box bag - but since there's a two-yard fabric requirement, it's more like a set of zippered box bags.
I think this fabric looks so happy and I can't wait to cut into it. I am trying to narrow down which tutorial I will use to make them, because there are several really good ones out there.
Another Loopy Academy assignment is to make a table topper or wall hanging.
I have found the pattern I want to use. I'll share more about it another time.
Well, I'm nothing if not ambitious.
