I can do better!

Have you ever finished a project, been really proud to have done it, but when you look at it again a day or two later you think "I can do better"? Well, thats what happened with Dot's Ditty Bag that I made a few weeks ago! I decided to do two - one for each of my step-neices Bekky and Gracie. Here is the output - a big improvement in my mind!

Ditty Bags - Take Two


I also finished the fur scarf for Bekky (I finished Gracie's Fur Scarf back in June. I love how this fur works up...when knitting with it! I cried when I tried to crochet with it out of sheer frustration!

Bekky's Fur Scarf


I have an envelope all put together and ready to go to the post office - I also picked up some really cute pencil cases for all 3 of my neices and my nephew at a store that was going out of business - forgot to take a picture of them before wrapping them up!

Those little Ditty Bags are so cute! I should make one sometime...Just add it to my list! I love the scarf too, and I feel your pain of crocheting with that fur! Unfortuntately, I don't know how to knit all that well. Maybe I should learn...

Love the addition of the flowers! Interesting that the fun fur is easier to knit than crochet with ... umm I don't think that's enough to get me to try it though! LOL

Great bags Kimberly! I agree with you about crocheting with fun fur. Knitting is an easier way to keep track of stitches in a yarn like fun fur. Fun fur stitches just seem to get lost in crocheting.
