Finished Unbiased!

My bag liner sat around the house for a week, while I barely looked at it. Unlike knitting, sewing isn't something you can do on the bus, or doing class. But finally the weekend came and I found myself with free time. The straps had taken hours to sew in, but the rest of the liner, only about an hour. It was done in a jiffy, and now I have a gorgeous new accessory to wear out on the town tomorrow.

Unbiased Liner!

Over the course of a weekend my boyfriend's mom and I finished the liner for my new bag. It's absolutely amazing, though I feel some chagrin over it being way more difficult than I had imagined - thus putting a lot more stress on my boyfriend's mom. We had to hurry a bit, and she accidentally put the zipper on upside down. She then had to rip it out and sew it back in the harder way, and the bright purple zipper is not more obvious than before too. It's alright though, it's a rainbow bag after all.

All there is left to do is sew the completed liner in by hand. So it will probably be a few more days until it's finished.

Time Suck

I just spent several hours cataloging my stash, my projects, and my needles on ravelry. Given the state of things it was something that needed to be done, but being on the computer all day ALWAYS feels like a waste of time.

I suppose that means I should go knit something, then! :>)

PS- I went to the fabric store and bought a liner fabric for Unbiased. It's a silkey, rainbow, Asiany thing, and I'm excited about how it's going to turn out.

I just got my ravelry invite! Yaaaaay!

So now I need a blog to go with it.

Currently I am working on:

I washed it and then mended the holes. ::sigh:: Thankfully the fabric hides this dramatic saga and I think everything will turn out fine. But it frays too easily, so I need to sew a liner into it to make it a little more sturdy.

Knitting with Plastic -WIP
My plans so far are to finish this garter stitch square to make a base, and then pick up the edges and knit stockinette in the round. I'm considering whether to attempt some intarsia on the front. I think the three arrow triangle would be really cute and appropriate for this project.
