Happenings July 22

Welcome to Happenings, where you will learn what Rachel has been up to this week. Check back every week for Finished Items, Works-in-Progress, Reading, Watching, and Hearing. You will also find happenings from other crafters that caught her attention.

FINISHED ITEM
Not knitting, but related. Inspired by Craftsy's Drawstring Bag free class, This bag was cut out and sewn in one afternoon. It is the perfect size for a pair of socks, or I might use it occasionally to keep a wound ball neat. There is also a Craftsy Class Bag Making Basic's Reversible Tote and Zipper Pouch. I plan to make the tote with a drawstring as well. And the zippered pouch would be great for knitting notions. 


My new reversible project bag. Isn't it cute?

WORK-IN-PROGRESS

The center of each block is a lovely combination of cables and lace bordered by seed stitch and honeycomb.  The blocks are sewn together at the end to give you an heirloom knit quilt. Luise O'Neill of Impeccable Knits allowed me to test, here is one of my blocks:
