feels like fall
i have had a lot of time to knit though as outdoor activities aren't happening in this weather! i am just about done with a poncho made of this
it is gedifra micro chic in black, there are a couple cream stripes along the bottom. i should have pictures soon. unfortunately, i had a bit of a measuring blunder and i am not quite sure it is going to fit me. i LOOSELY based the pattern on the paris loop from magknits.com, but in reality it is nothing like it except for the knitting in the round part! that is what i get for trying to create my own pattern i suppose.
i cast on for a small handbag yesterday, it is a free pattern. i didn't buy crystal palace ribbon yarn. it is another brand that i don't remember, there is a pic of it in my last post.
so as you can see i am keeping busy with the knitting. trying to get some fall items done for myself so i can start working on more gifts for the holidays. i probably haven't mentioned this, but i lost my job awhile back and have an end date of Dec. 31st. from the middle of october to the end date i am unsure if i will have much to do at work and my boss will be in texas. i am hoping that gives me time to decide what to do with my life and knit! (maybe knitting is what i decide to do with my life!)....
