Since my last blog post, I...
...got a job. Part-time teller. I'm really enjoying it, although it does keep me busy. Getting a job means getting a paycheck... which means I have money to spend!!
I've become addicted to Vera Bradley.
This particular bag is the Campus Tote in 'Ribbons'. I am in love with this purse! Next on the shopping list is Laura in Heather and a wallet.
I've also become obsessed with hand-dyed yarn. So far, I've indulged in Candy Skein and Gnome Acres.
This one is Candy Skein, Yummy Fingering, in the June monthly colourway 'Bubblegum Ice Cream'. I can't believe I only bought one of these skeins!
And, yes, it is the Hitchhiker pattern.
In a change of pace, I ordered worsted-weight yarn from Gnome Acres. This particular one is 'No Place Like Gnome'. I'm participating in the Gnome-a-long being hosted on Ravelry.
I've also finished my Multnomah shawl since we've last talked!
It spent the day blocking while I was at work. I could not be happier with the results! One of my favourite things about crocheting/knitting is watching the item progress. Scrolling through my Ravelry project page for this shawl shows how it grew, and I think that's really interesting. I'm proud of myself for finishing my first knitted shawl!
Thank you for reading this long update! :) I'm hoping to blog more in the coming weeks... just need to find a consistent schedule!
