More sewing!

I love sewing! Yes, indeed, I am slowly starting to obsess about what I could sew next. This could be very dangerous.

When I made my first trip to the Rag Shop (the only place close that sells fabric and it is not all that great mind you) I picked up a few fat quarters to experiment with and I knew one of the things I wanted to make was an "on the go" knitting pouch. I wasn't entirely sure how to go about making it nor did I find a pattern at the Rag Shop that would work.

I then remembered a knitting blog I read posted a tutorial several months ago. After finally figuring out which blog it was I used Yarnmonster's fabulous tutorial to create a pouch for my knitting!

It is even reversible!

I even figured out how to make a drawstring since I did not have any ribbon to use as recommended! Go me!!! Here is my knitting pouch in action...

And yes, that is my Green Gable in hand...or my blue gable. It is coming along nicely as you can see...

It won't be long before I can count this is a finished object, just as soon as I get the body length to my specs. I will try it on again soon to be sure I like the length since the sizing is pretty good.

Love the bag and thanks for directing me to the pattern/tutorial. AND for posting about your first socks - I am inspired (and, thanks again for the link)! Particularily inspiring seeing as learning how to knit socks was my 2007 New Years resolution and I haven't started a pair at all!

LOVE the Jayne Cobb hat too!
