A new thread...

First, do you just hate computers sometimes? You have a whole post done, a whole report, an especially thoughtful e-mail - whatever - and's gone?

Anyways, I got some yummy fabric yesterday. I have been jonesing to sew since I found splityarn - she has some incredible tutorials. I want to try the coin purse and the needle case that starts as an old book. I got some snaps for the change purses - since I think the closure just makes the prpject so simple and clean. I love fabric like I love yarn, it is like meditation to hang out between the rows of bolts - like the closest to yoga I've been in a bit. I started a softie knitting needle case before my pilgrimage, I just need to find a closure and sew down some elastic to pin the needles in there better. Then I have to give it away, because you know... But again, I adore the fabric.

I haven't deserted knitting or anything - I think I am still just avoiding seaming that damn sweater. I have kept on with the Diamond Patch mittens, once I figured those little squares out, they were a little addictive...if not a little tedious - slow going.

I would swear that computers come straight from the devil!

I LOVE the fruity fabric and the needle case is absolutely gorgeous. Great start on the mittens!

Are they terribly futzy, those little diamonds? Because I think I would go mad...
