Well what have I been up to? Last weekend my mom, who owns a local quilt shop here in town, hosted a quilt retreat weekend. It was a fun filled weekend. Lots and lots of sewing, laughing and catching up with old friends. I finished my Easy Peasy Zig Zag Socks. I love the yarn, it is Classic Elite Alpaca Sox. I love love love love this yarn. I think anything with Alpaca in it is wonderful!
The socks look a little long in this picture, but they fit like a glove.
The second project I worked on was a pattern for a fleece hat called Quick and Easy Fleece Beanie for our Crochet Guild charity project. This month we are making hats for one of the local hospitals and the teenagers that are receiving chemo treatments. I made 14 of these bad boys. They were quick and easy.
Another project I NEEDED to get made was a tote bag for work. This pattern is called the Junk Bag by a local designer Jackie Clark. This is the second one I have made and I absolutely love this pattern. The bag is huge and can carry lots of goodies.
I also made this sewing caddy that will set by my sewing machine. Love how it turned out.
Had to make this cute chunky baby hat.
I also made this adorable pink baby hat. A fellow co-worker is expecting in the next month, so I made her this. My favorite is the adorable pink flower.
Almost forgot I had to make a little zipper pouch to go inside my new bag.
I felt like I was a little sweat shop this weekend, but I loved every moment.
