The marathon was great yesterday (but I'm feeling it today!). But, guess what I left on the train on the way home last night? A half-finished Hourglass body, a couple balls of Noro Cash Iroha, some Addis, and my favorite tape measure. :( I'm bummed! I'm usually so anal making sure I've collected all my luggage, but I was SO tired and SO out of it after the race I overlooked the zip lock holding my project (I thought I had shoved it in another bag, but it must have fallen out). I even called the MTA and left a voicemail, but I doubt that will do any good. They'll probably laught at my message!

Anyone have a good project for a half sweater's worth of Cash Iroha?

I didn't know you were running the marathon! I was watching on Lafayette ave, so you probably ran right past me!
It's so sad that you forgot your knitting on the train...

Oh no!!!!!!! You never know what may happen, so keep the faith.....

I did that a few weeks back at a dog show (thought i had put the bag into my other bag, but it had fallen out) but lcukily someone picked it up and turned it into lost and found!

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry you lost your knitting! I would be crying! I hope it makes its way back to you somehow.
Congrats on doing the marathon, though! :)

Box Bag Tutorial

A couple of you inquired whether I made this pouch based on a tutorial or pattern and if not, if I could provide one. Ask and you shall receive!

I've learned so much from tutorials out on the internets, I'm happy I can give back for once. Bear with me, though. This is my first tutorial and creating one is much tougher than I imagined. I give anyone who's created a tutorial tons of credit!

I feel obligated to preface this by admitting I'm a trial and error sewer. I make things up as I go along and test things during the sewing process to see if I'm achieving my desired results. Also, I taught myself to sew just playing around on a sewing machine, so I don't always use text book methods. Just wanted come clean before you all jump into this and so you have a little understanding if I did something in a backass way. The pattern works, which is all that matters to me!

Because of the versatility of this pattern, my instructions can be used more as guidelines. You can e…

Nursing Pad Tutorial

Thanks for all the lovely messages about Alice! We're getting into a groove around here and I've finally been able to do a little crafting. My sewing machine has finally seen some use and thanks to some sage advice from Elizabeth over at A Mingled Yarn (Thanks, Elizabeth!), I'm finally able to knit while nursing.

Speaking of nursing, after tearing through a couple of boxes of nursing pads I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own more environmentally-friendly version. I couldn't find an available pattern on the internet, so I thought I would share mine with you. There are probably better ways to construct them, but this worked for me.

Don't they look like ravioli?

What you'll need to make 12 breast pads (6 sets):
1/2 yard cotton flannel* (I used a natural color because I didn't want a wild print peeking through my shirt. You can go crazy with creativity, though)
1/4 yard cotton batting*

*A note on fabric: I used cotton flannel and …
