Winter Deer Knot Bag View 1
Winter Deer Knot Bag View 2
New bag completed. It’s a pretty winter deer scene with sparkles all over. The green is actually a little more intense than the picture shows, really pretty scene.
I’ve begun knitting the hat that goes with the sweater I haven’t yet finished for the little one I watch. That way she will have something she can wear soon, while I work on the sweater. I’ll post a picture when I get it finished.
Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving day, some good food, family, friends and football games :). Hope everyone stays safe in their travels.
1st Snowfall Winter 2015-2016
Our first snowfall for this winter season was a dozy. About 5 inches fell from yesterday evening thorough overnight. I know winter isn’t officially here yet, but I don’t think winter knows that 😛

I did finish the 2×2 ribbed hat from the Polypay yarn. It turned out pretty nice. I am pleased with the result. I hope he will enjoy it as well.
Trying to decide what to make next with that yarn :).
Star Wars Knot Bag 2 view 1
Star Wars Knot Bag 2 view 2
I did get this sewn up today :). Cute fabric with the some of the original Star Wars characters, Darth Vader, R2D2, C3PO, and Luke Skywalker.
I have two of the Winter series bags cut out, one is a medium size and the other a large. Might get one sewn up tomorrow, but it might be next week before I get them done.
I didn’t finish the knitted hat yesterday, but very close and it will be finished for sure today :). I will get a picture of it put up tomorrow because I intend to give it to the recipient Sunday. 🙂
Winter storm watch today, and about 5 to 8 inches of snow expected overnight they said. Winter appears to be here. Is it Spring yet?
Christmas Ivy Bag
This is the last Holiday bag I have planned to sew for this season, tho I do enjoy all the beautiful Holiday fabrics. I do have another Star Wars bag cut out and a Winter bag cut out. I will be adding a Winter bag collection to my Etsy shop after the Star Wars bag is finished. 🙂 Some of those will be larger bags like the Cowboy bag in the previous post. They will be large enough for a good sized shawl and perhaps a sweater.
I’m close to finishing the knitted hat I’m working on for my friend’s husband. I’ll post a picture of it when it is done, maybe tomorrow. 🙂
Speaking of tomorrow, we are suppose to have a mixture of snow and rain tomorrow, turning into just snow in the evening and overnight. Projections for amounts are around 3 inches or more, depending on how warm the ground is and how much of it melts. I knew it had to come, but I’m never ready for snow :P.
Cowboys Bag 3 sizes
I got the large Cowboys bag made for my son in law. I took a picture of all three sizes so you could see the differences between them. The larger bag takes more fabric (3/4 of a yard of main fabric and same for liner), but is a little easier to sew around the handles so I guess it’s a trade off. 🙂 If you click on the picture it will enlarge in another window.
We had some really bad Thunderstorms through last night. High winds and tornado warnings. They said someone sighted a tornado touch down in one of the surrounding towns but we didn’t have one here thank goodness. I didn’t hear of anyone getting hurt, but there were branches blown off trees in the road and peoples trash cans in the roads. The rains stopped this morning sometime but the winds didn’t die down until about 6pm. I’m ready for some sun now ;P.
The 2nd hat I’m knitting out of the polypay is coming along. The first one (that I forgot to get a picture of 😦 ) was 1×1 rib, this one is a 2×2 rib. Playing to see what looks best. I’m hoping “crosses fingers” to have it done by Saturday evening.
For our Military, who have given service and sacrificed for our freedom!
Afghanistan isn’t on this old picture, but please note that those veterans are certainly included! I would like to take a moment to thank all those veterans who fought in the various wars and “police actions” for our freedom. Thank you for your service, and thank you to your families for allowing you to do that.
Christmas Tree Knot Bag
Holiday Reindeer Knot Bag
I have several new Christmas Knot Bags made for my Etsy shop. These two are embroidered. Was fun picking out the designs from all the designs I’ve purchased and amassed over the years. I wanted them to be simple but elegant :).
The two below are some really pretty Christmas fabrics I saw. They were calling me to make them. So many beautiful fabrics, so little time lol.
Christmas Bag 1
Christmas House Bag
I did finish the knitted hat from the polypay yarn, but sadly I forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it to them. I still have one more to make, so I will try to remember to get a picture of this one before giving it. I have the skein rolled into a ball and have begun casting on.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving season and preparing for an equally wonderful Christmas season. 🙂
