Here we go.

I finally made something to give away for monday’s “yay I’m a year and 100 posts old” give away.

Little clutch

I don’t have Bend the Rules Sewing, but figured this little bag would be easy enough to make. The fun part was decorating it. I had made ths little doily out of the last of the green cotton from my bag when I saw So Tread Softly’s clutch, and it all came together from there. The wee bit of embroidery was fun, I must do more!

So, if you’d like to be the recipient of this clutch leave a comment here or the other post and you’ll go in the draw. I’ll pick a winner tommorow! (I’ve got some other goodies to add in too…but they’re a suprise.)

Today I took some more seedling photos in the sun. There’s a photo competition on in the bio department at uni at the moment and I was thinking of entering one, I’d love to know which one you like best.

Also I took the scarf I made with the wool from the mellow+colour swap off the blocking board. It’s still a bit curly- I think it’s just the nature of the stockenette stitch, but I like the purl side just as much, so it does’nt bother me. I think the combination of textures is nice.

Green Scarf

I love love love this wool, knitting with it was so much fun, not knowing which colour was going to come next! It is nice and soft against my neck. I really must get my hands on some space dyed roving to spin, because spinning and knitting it would be twice as much fun! Thanks again Erica!

    Your scarf is wonderful! I’m so glad that you enjoyed knitting with it. I wish I could knit…you have made me want to take some classes. As for the bag…the lining inside is darling and the embroidery so fun!

    ps. the picture of you wearing you scarf is very well done. The lighting, the color and just a bit of your face…very well composed!

    Love the garter side too. But I’m all about garter scarves these days. 🙂

    Yay for a drawing!
