I have been having a productive and creative weekend and wanted to share some of it with you. Today I finished up two projects. The top photo shows my first ever pair of hand knitted socks. My mom showed me the basics of knitting a sock over the holidays and helped me to complete the first one. For the second I was on my own, thankfully I had a very good pattern with easy to follow instructions. I am really pleased with the way they turned out and will probably make more socks in the future. However, I think I might select a chunkier yarn for the next pair I do!
The second photo shows a simple zippered pouch. It was my first time using a metal zipper for this style of pouch and after resolving a few bumps along the road, I am happy with the overall look of the piece. I love the colour combination and the subtle texture of the fabric.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful family day long weekend!
