Yes, it's my prize for May bag (Bag Me KAL) - Wendy, you are a Goddess! >*^o^*<
It's a ball of Opal sock yarn - It was one of my "knitter's dream" yarn, I've seen Opal here and there on blogs and wondered how on Earth I could get my hands on a skein - and here it is, right in my arms! ^^
Second one - a huge (250 g) skein of awesome orange New Zealand wool for another felted bag! ^v^
And the bag pattern (in fact, two bags - smaller and bigger) - The "Twice As Nice" Bag. I think I might combine this orange Wool Pak with the green wool I have left from my Yarn Guard Basket and make a two-colour version.
And last, but not least, I got a fan - very handy right now, since we started to have a real hot summer in Poland! Thank you very, very much! ^^
I finished the top for Sew? I knit just in time. I still got some of this fabric, maybe I'll make a matching bag? ^^
Here is also the photo of a blue skirt for Sylwia (my camera finally decided to cooperate!).
And I'm felting the Yarn Guard Basket today, so I hope to post the tutorial and photos at the end of the week.
My first year as a jeweler's apprentice is almost finished, there are only three classes left and then there will be summer break. I already enlisted for next year - this time I won't have to sit in front of the Artistic Centre closed doors from 12:00 till 17:00 to apply (some girls waited since 9:00 in the morning!...) I have so many ideas, and finally I'll be able to transform many jeweler's stones I kept buying for years into pieces of jewelery for me and for my family. Even now I'm working on something, but I cannot tell you yet, because I'm not sure whether my husbands reads my blog - and it's a surprise for him for our 2nd wedding anniversary (whic is on 19th June). So, whatever it is, I'll show you next week! ^-^
BTW, if you want to see some works of my teacher, here is his webpage: Roman Kowalkowski , the page is in Polish, but there are no descriptions, only his jewelery, oil paintings and artistic photos.
So, I just read your blog title... are you actually a practicing wiccan?ReplyDelete
The top is sooo cute! OK, everything you make is cute :)ReplyDelete
I haven't tried Opal yet--I tried ordering some recently and they were out of the color I wanted. It's next on my list though.
The blue skirt is just as lovely as the others and that top is lovely. You are always so productive!ReplyDelete
Thank you very much! ^^ReplyDelete
Kendra, I am so productive that I sometimes think I don't know how to rest - even when my hands are not occupied with knitting or sewing, I'm planning next projects in my mind!...
