long weekend projects

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!
