Confession #1

I am so addicted to knitting and completing projects, it’s not even funny.  Proof?  Tonight (well, last night) was the second time I chose to knit instead of going out dancing with my guy friends.  Tonight is the second time I’ve stayed up ’til after 3 knitting/completing a knitting project.

Confession #2

I really hate seaming.  Mostly because I haven’t gotten the hang of mattress seaming.

Confession #3

I really need to find different needles or a different technique so I don’t have to hand sew my liners and handles onto my knitted projects.  Tonight I spent 2 hours hand sewing my liner and handles.  😦  Not fun.  But I hesitate to use my sewing machine because the last few times I tried to seam anything that was thicker than sweatpants, my needles exploded.  I have gone through 5 needles because of this, so I’m beyond wary of using my machine on my knitting.

Confession #4

Sometimes I hate what I’m knitting until it’s completed.  The bag I completed tonight I was so not in love with as much while putting the parts together.  But now that it’s done, I am impressed with myself and love it.

Well, I should probably bag some zzzz’s before starting a whole new day.

    My mum always had problems wth sewing machine needles, never seemed to matter what see was sewing, the needles always broke. I think I’ve only had to replace the needle once on there as I hit a pin. The bags look great

    Thanks! My husband thinks my problem is that I try to sew too fast with the thick fabric and the needle just can’t handle it.

    You might try needles that are meant for leather or upholstery fabric – they’ll probably go through the thick layers better and save you some grief. Haven’t tried it yet myself, but my mom is an experienced seamstress and suggested the same for my crocheted bag linings. 🙂

    Thanks! I will have to look into that next time I’m at the fabric store!
