A girl's got to have accessories

*due to a minor technical glitch, pictures will be posted later this afternoon.*
Added Later: I found-- er, worked out my technical difficulties with my camera.

I met Tara and Sue for "Stitches at Noon" in the new VU library. pretty swanky place. Sue was making a VERY cute bag from the Pursenalities book. (By the way, Carma, I did have time to go by the cafe and pick up my vegetarian wrap. Yup, it was a good day, in spite of the crappy weather.)

Speaking of purses, here are my two buttonhole bags. The greenish brown one is made out of worsted odds and ends,(mostly naturespun and jo sharp silkroad tweed) and the purple out of Lamb's Pride Bulky. Curious how the bulky one is smaller...

Here's the Manos del Uruguay wrap I've blogged about, but not shown you. I worked on it mostly while watching King Arthur and Return of the King, so Of course it begged for celtic knotwork-type buttons.

If I had Go-go-gadget arms, I could model it. Here's a pathetic attempt at modeling and picture taking at the same time.

If you are wondering, I am standing on the lip of the tub, and taking a picture of my reflection in the medicine cabinet mirror.

While at my LYS Tuesday, I saw a color of Lamb's Pride Bulky that I fell in love with. and I decided it must be a hat.

The color is "Tiger Lily". The other colors I could not tell you. The blue was left over from my button hole bag, and the gold is scraps left from the Chesterton school colors hat and scarf I made my sister for Christmas.

We had a sort of "make-up" Stitch 'n Bitch last night that I did not make. Nate had a late night. The next one is the 7th, which is not too far off. I might just go through snb withdrawl if I don't make that one though.

So, what am I working on now? I'm *trying* an entrelac scarf, out of Silk Garden. We'll see how things go.
