Work in Progress Wednesday 146

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. We had a very fun and busy weekend, and since it was a long one, it's catch up time this week. Before I get started, I just had to take a quick moment to have some hockey excitement. As you all know, I'm a HUGE HUGE HUGE hockey fan, and my teams are the LA Kings and Pittsburgh Penguins. As of Tuesday night, they are both going to their respective conference finals. I can't believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today I have a few things to show you, but not a lot of progress to be honest. I didn't get any knitting/crafting time this weekend.

Not a ton of progress since you last saw this, but do you notice the little side wings starting?! It's going good, and now I'm just marching to the finish. I think the pattern calls for 12" before the final end rows. I hope to have this finished in the next week or so. This is my Herbivore shawl by Stephen West in MadTosh Sock in Spectrum. Not a great pic, but I took it at 11:30 at night. 

This is fabric that I cut out to make a little tote bag. It's a free pattern on Craftsy (a free class actually!). I was having issues with my sewing machine (user error I think, since my friend came over and it worked great for her), so I hope to jump back on this and see how I do making it. I don't have a ton of sewing experience but one of my goals is to get much better than I am at it. Isn't this amazing fabric? Again, sorry for the bad pic, but it's Nancy Drew fabric!!!! So awesome.

That's it for me today! I hope you all have a great rest of the week and I'll see you back here on Friday!

  1. Loving the shawl and progress is progress no matter how big or small I always say. Your tote bag is going to look great, really striking material.
