Mid-week

I've got a few quick things to share with you today.

First up, the winner of the Kona card giveaway!
Courtesy of Brenda and Pink Castle Fabrics, the winner of the new Kona color card is #60, Tonya, who said her new favorite is poppy, since she has two girls to sew for.
Lovely choice, and congratulations! I sent you an email Tonya, so please send me your address to collect your prize!
Thanks to all who entered!

So, so close

Over the weekend, I knit for several hours on this second sock! I actually finished, and the socks are blocking now. Hopefully, I can share the finish soon!

I also had a second go at Anna's lovely Gathered Clutch pattern. Funnily enough, my first gathered clutch was made last August, and I ended up sending it to Nicke.

FO: foxy gathered clutch

For this version, I used two Lizzy House - Outfoxed prints, and I lined with a Kaffe Fassett Spot. I love those Spot prints!

Much better

Ignore my finger that needs lotion and just look at those soft Spots. And that great zipper tab!

Less perfect

Here's the other side, which I just could not get right. I tried several times, but it wasn't happening on this end. Anna's instructions are very clear; I think this mistake resulted from an error I made earlier in the pattern. Hopefully, my tabe will look nicer the next time!

I still love it, though!

I hope your week is going well!
