I did slack off a bit before finishing my first sweater. I watched the Democratic Convention, so I did not finish it until yesterday. I have to say that it’s bad for my first sweater. I will be wearing this sweater in the office and at home. It’s actually a nice heavy sweater and will come in handle on those cold fall days. I am not unable to wear it under a coat because of the bulkiness.
I have a couple of skeins left of my Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn, and thought it would nice to knit a hat and use the buttons I have left as decoration for the hat and wear with my sweater. Much to my surprise, Lion Brand created a new sweater that’s the same as the one I just finished knitting that is a longer version much to my chagrin. Why couldn’t have posted the new pattern soon? However, it’s find because I will knit the longer version.
I finally started my tote bag project despite not having found handles, but should be able to find handles later this week. However, the fusing and lining are done and thinking about not adding a zipper, but it depends on my mood.
Hopefully, I will finish with my tote bag, figure what you do with my remaining yarn, and purchase yarn for my crochet sweater project. Perhaps, I will get some sewing done other than my bag, lol. Happy Labor Day!
