Nothing too exciting happened today. I just spent the day cleaning up the massive mess in my living room. It looked like a yarn shop had thrown up everywhere. I still have little peices of yarn everywhere. I had to stop cleaning cause my head felt like it was going to explode. It felt really strange not having to make anything. I am still thinking about what I would like to make for myself. I think that I will finish this really cool striped scarf that I started on a while ago. I found this really interesting verigated yarn at a thrift store a while back. I think it will make a really neat scarf.
If you look close you can see the blue stripe. I wanted it to be very subtle. I think it will turn out pretty good. This yarn has a really neat texture to it. Unfortunately I dont know what it is. I am pretty sure it is a cotton yarn. I almost positive that it isn't acrylic. And by the way here is a picture of the dress I made for my neice. Now keep in mind it is the very first thing I have ever sewn.
I don't think it is too bad for a beginner. We chose a very simple pattern for a starter project. I can't wait to make something else! I think I will make myself a sundress. Rob LOVES sundresses. For now I'm gonna focus on getting my house clean and organize my stash. It is a mess! Plus I really think I need to get off of my butt!!!!
