I’m very pleased with how the crocheted and knitted bag is turning out for my daughter’s teacher.
And while I could easily give it to her tomorrow. I’ve decided to hold off giving it to her until next week. My daughter last day of school is tomorrow, the teachers have another week. I told Mrs. M; we’d be stopping by next week to bring her garden produce. I didn’t mention the gift. Why ruin the surprise?
Of course, this means I can add additional extras to the bag, I’m really excited. And… I’ll be posting pictures, of the bag, at some point. I’m thrilled that I’ll be able to share a few of the crafts I enjoy within one project.
I really tried to hold off on doing anything knitting related for a while. I wanted to devote most of my crafting time to crochet, and it worked for about five months. But, I didn’t hold off as long as I’d originally planned. Way too many knitting projects are calling my name, and I’m over the moon about circular knitting needles! Who knew, I’d love them so much!
Since I’m over that crochet learning hump, and have practiced and made numerous crocheted items. I think it’s ok to bring knitting back into the mix, don’t you?
I feel the quality of my crochet is at the level where it can be included with some of my knitting projects. Well… in this case it’s the other way around, since the bag is mainly crochet.
Knitting has decided to make a guest appearance on the crochet bag, and since they are now on the same level, knitting won’t be embarrassed being featured on the same project as crochet.
As I mentioned before, I’m a process crafter. I enjoy the process, more than completing the project, and so in my mind, I’m already lining up other projects for my queue.
With the crochet and knitted bag turning out as I envisioned, I’m definitely in my happy place!
