A Finish and Something New!

Not a lot happening in the sewing room at the moment but that should all be changing again soon. Warmer weather and some sunshine should inspire me to get back into my sewing routine. I finished this knitted scarf last weekend and I am very happy with the result. Not only is this style good for using up scraps, they knit up very quickly and can be made with any combinations of yarn. The furry yarns add texture and there is warmth in the mohair blends which I used in the alternate rows. This one is made in a combination of blues, purples and pinks. During the week I started a new bag but this is a s far as I got, I lost count! I had fun embroidering these numbers and need to do a few more before I put the bag together. I hope I will find time to do some work on this on the weekend. Finished is the desired outcome, I'll let you know if I succeed.
Ooh ... we got stitchers angel partners this week and I can hardly wait for the patterns to be up so I can get started, I am looking forward to lots of fun.
Find some time for creativity this weekend and Enjoy.
Happy Crafting
