These are a couple of spiderweb zippered purses I made yesterday, I still can't put zips in quite perfectly, but I'm improving. The spiderwebs were machine embroidered on my horrible old Singer, quite a feat in itself as it seems to have only one speed - FAST! I hand sewed a few little red and silver beads on afterwards, and they are lined with a nice red and black floral fabric. Very gothy.
Responding to a plea from my cousin Alice in London, who is still very cold, I am knitting a pair of mittens for her. She wants them asap, so although I'd love to do something tricky involving fair isle, I'm sticking with the a plain pair with a garter stitch cuff from Weekend Knitting. Hopefully I should have them done this weekend!
