Busy Bee

I finally made it to the store this weekend to buy some fabric and things to finish some projects I had started months ago. I also got around to taking some pictures and posting new items in my etsy shop. I've been so busy lately with working and knitting and watching dexter episodes at night that I haven't been spending much time on crocheting. But I made some good progress this weekend.
(some wrist/handwarmers I made a while ago)

I also finished the purse I blogged about before. I bought some fabric for the lining and attached the handle this weekend. I really love how it turned out. I'm thinking about adding a fabric flower or something to the front to accessorize.

Still to do:
Line another purse with fabric
Finish knitting a washcloth by Thursday
Finish the hat I started making last month
Finish crocheting a zillion flowers and sew together to make a really cute (I hope) purse!


I think I'm actually starting to get the hang of this knitting thing! I've been practicing the different stitch patterns :

I can knit and purl and do ribbing and the seed stitch and garter stitch and all that. Still haven't figured out how to make the edges look neater or how to fix mistakes, but I'm pretty excited that I've gotten this far.
My first project is a dishcloth and then from there hopefully a pretty scarf for myself!
