Apples & Pears!

I received my pear and apple fabric last week, and thought what a great idea for a bag. I made up my own pattern, and whipped it up about half an hour ago, cut it out and stitched it together on the machine. The pear fabric is actually pockets on both sides, and I really do love it. I bought mine from Sarah who always sells such beautiful fabrics and vintage chenille too. This will be great for toting along my knitting projects and the pattern book too, just the perfect size.
I also finished up my other dishcloth, and I really love the colors in this one, as they are totally different to the other two colorways. The bright orange dishcloth was tested out in the shower by Isabelle who loved using it to wash her face. I will have to keep the green one for me I think, and knit up a few more. I also finished Lachlan's beanie as you see above, and it is a perfect fit. The pattern was actually from a Lincraft pamphlet that my mum had so it came in very handy. Lachlan and I also finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It was a great book, although I am sad that there will be no more adventures to read. Well that is about all for now as I am off to sew up the baby pink jacket. I finished knitting the hood last night, and it took so long because I got bored with it, but picked it back up last night and finished it off. Now to sew in the zipper and hopefully tomorrow I can post it for you all to see. Happy knitting!
