Back from Rochester



I was visiting my parents over the weekend. I didn't bring my knitting, because I'm too paranoid about it being seized by airport security. I did do some crocheting, but I don't have pics of that. I got back last night.

Today I actually used my sewing machine. I made the "Flare Bag," the first pattern in a book called Bag Boutique by Amy Barickman. Since I really suck at sewing, I'm pretty pleased that this came out useable. I'm hoping to make some totes soon too.

I also finished the body and started the first sleeve of my "Not-Really-Something-Red" sweater. I'm feeling pretty good about it.

Plus, tomorrow Michelle and I are going to the Hub Mills Classic Elite warehouse store!

Thanks, both of you! I have been sewing on and off for about a year, but I still have a lot to learn. I haven't gotten to sewing clothes yet, just accessories.

The real question is, "What isn't the Hub Mills Classic Elite Store"?

Actually, it is the warehouse outlet for the Classic Elite Yarn Company, Michelle's favorite yarn manufacturer.
