Busy weekend!

We just got back from my brother's. It was his 40th b-day and his wife threw him a big party. We had a lot of fun, but boy am I tired! It is so damn hot, and they say 94 is forcast for tomorrow. ugh. I think we'll be hiding in the air conditioning.

My brother gave me some pictures from his wedding. One cracked me up, I'll try to figure out how to post it. It's me and my bald head at the hair salon. lol My daughter was getting hers done, but it struck me as funny.
Here is the pic of baldie me at the hair salon before my brother's wedding. lol Sydney was such a cutie about getting her hair done for the first time. :) Posted by Hello

I'm on a tear. I got the Lucy bag and entrelac suki bag done yesterday. Today I am finishing up Cleaves. Just in time for summer. lol It is really looking cute. I still think I will wear it at night on top of tank tops. It still cools off around here. I think I will finish the two shrugs I'm working on next, and the straps to the daypack. It's fun to get all these wip's done while I'm feeling good. Lower doses of meds rock! I'm in more pain, but waaaaay less nausea, so I'll take it!

Here is the Lucy bag blocking. It's really cute. I may add a pin to the front. Posted by Hello
I've had a productive day. While the kiddos napped I finished the Lucy bag. Here it is pre-felt. It's in the washer now. Posted by Hello
Here is the finished bag. I really like it! It will make a good project bag. I'm glad I decided to try it. Posted by Hello

The entrelac suki is done except for the handles. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I'll finish the handles and felt it today. Posted by Hello

The entrelac bag continued. One more row and I can start decreasing for the bottom of the bag. Posted by Hello

I thought I would take a small break today from the entrelac bag to try my new yarn. It is Shine from KnitPicks. It is just beautiful. I am making a lace wrap with it. I'm really liking it so far. Posted by Hello

The entrelac bag is progressing. I can't wait to see what it looks like once it's felted! Posted by Hello

I got brave and am trying an entrelac suki tote bag. It's not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. Yea! Posted by Hello

I'm done with the body of the lucy bag, and starting to bind off to do the straps. Now if I can just make myself finish the daypack... Posted by Hello

It's hotter than Hades here. UGH

Well, it's humid and in the 90's here, and supposed to be that way all week. Time to hide in the air conditioning. I will drag out the kids care bears sprinkler today. Maybe we need to buy a little wading pool.

I'm almost done with the Lucy bag. It is going to be so cute! It still looks an awful lot like a boob when you turn it upside down. Now it's just a DD instead of an A. lol

It feels way too warm to work on Cleaves right now. I think this bag junkie will start another purse. Our kids' sitter asked if I would make her one.

The start of the Lucy bag. It sort of looks like a boob so far. I got to learn a new cast on, which was cool. All of the Two Old Bags patterns seem to have unusual cast ons. I need to finish the straps on the daypack too. Posted by Hello

The bag part of the daypack is done. Now to make the ties and straps. This was a fun and easy pattern. Posted by Hello
