I like the colors on the calorimetries a lot...are the colors from the yarn being patterned or did you do different yarns for each band of color?

The yarn is self-striping- Paton's SWS.  I've made this pattern/yarn/needle combination three times now (I really can't learn...) and the stripes matched nicely 2/3 of the time.  The colors don't bulls-eye on the pink like they do on the brown.  There was a knot in the pink and it started at a different point in the repeat on the other side.  I need to try another in a smaller size to see if I can achieve the same effect.

I finally made some destashing progress too  Grin

I sewed myself some pants (first!) which turned out nice!
Good for 2meters of fabric ^_^

and I just finished cutting out 10 pieces (of 30) for the IQ-lamp that someone posted a pattern for here on craftster :-)

And.. I'm allowed to post this since my partner received miraculously quick.

For the Clutch, Tote, and Handbag swap, I managed to destash a piece of beautiful white & black & pink floral fabric that I've had hanging around for a couple years!

Here's the bag I sent sazzyjay:

With a close-up showing the pleat & button closure:

It's Oh Fransson's Margaret Sling Bag - http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2008/11/margaret-sling-bag.html, for which I actually used the pattern. (I don't think I've ever completely used a pattern before.).

I have been busy knitting 2 rugs with my fabric stash.  I have used about 30 yards of fabric and I used whatever ugly fabric I had in my stash.  I am almost finished with the larger one it is about an 8 foot diamiter circle.  I will post some pictures as soon as I get it done probably by this weekend.

But I did have a setback in the buying area.  I went to Walmart yesterday and they were closing out the fabric department and all the fabric was 75% off how can I resist that.  I got 17 yards of various fabrics.  I know I didn't need more but you know how that goes.  But it is really sad that Walmart is not selling fabric any more.

That bag is fab (and must of destashed a decent amount of fabric). I bet your partner loved it.

And really, eye_on_sparrow, in these economic times, I figure you shouldn't pass on a deal like that, esp. if you can put it to good use. Smiley

I have been wanting to make that bag, but didn't really know how big it would be. Now seeing that picture, how could I not make that bag? Great job!

Oooooooh, lovely fabrics! And good job on the bag, pleats make me cry when I try them [grin]

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.
