More Knit Pouches








I knit some more pouches, here are two of them. The pink one is block knit on both sides, light pink on one side, multi pink on the other. The camouflage one is block in camo and cable knit on the tan side. This was my first creation that involved cable knitting!  I messed up a little on the top next to the zipper, oh well, I still love it. :)

Knit Pouches








I knit two block pattern pouches this week. I did the pink one first with a red zipper and a pink and black polka dot lining. The blue one I made half the size of the pink one with a blue zipper and a flower lining. I'm very happy with how they turned out and I can't wait to make more :)

I finished the matching purse to the scarf I made for my mom. I'm pretty happy with it, it being the first one I ever knit. I gave it a snap closure and a pretty lining, but didnt get a good picture :( She was realy happy to get it. And I did finish my hat, I'll try to get a good pic :)

My mom just got her first sale on etsy the other day! It was this beautiful necklace. This is one of my favorite necklaces in her shop. And I love the spiral bracelets she makes.

Purple scarf


About two weeks ago my mom went to a yarn sale with me and she saw the Lion Brand suede yarn and loved how soft it was. She asked me to make her a scarf, I just finished it. I'm still a beginner knitter but the pattern was pretty easy. I'm still working on the matching purse, it will be my first knit purse, so far so good :) Here is the link to the pattern I used, but instead of pompoms I did fringe: http://www.bfranklincrafts.com/CraftIdeas/CraftIdea-PomPomScarf.html
I'm also working on a hat with the suede yarn but in black, also a first, but its for keeps :) Will post when purse is finished. The hat too, if I don't mess it up. :)
