This time I used the suggested type of yarn for the project, a 25% acrylic and 75% cotton blend (I used some Aunt Lydia's Denim that I had in my stash) and I think that the results turned out much better, as the yarn has more elasticity.
Did you know that I'm at Ravelry? I post my finished projects there as well. You're welcome to connect with me there.
And thanks to a good friend I've recently become addicted to making beaded bracelets:
Right now I know very little about jewelry making; these are just beads strung on stretch cording. But it is so satisfying to make something pretty in a short amount of time and be able to wear it right away! This one is my favorite so far:
I haven't been sewing at all lately. It's been so hot here in SoCal that sitting at a sewing machine with a pile of fabric on my lap hasn't appealed to me in the least. Though I've been thinking about finishing my Pauloa Kekahi angel-back muu muu project that I started ages ago (it is still raging hot here in Southern California, so no worries that summer is now officially over).
So that's it for now, dear readers. What projects are you working on?
