Hand embroidery in not my thing

Oh no, I'm so not enjoying the hand embroidery I have to do for school, no no no. But even if I'm not liking it, it's still cool to learn something new. It's just going too slow for me, aagh. I've been working on this little piece of practice embroidery for hours already, and I haven't gotten more than this done.
But hey, at least now I can do the kind of cute embellishments on my knitted items that I've seen on many blogs, and always keep thinking "that's cute, I wish I could do that." And now I can, wahoo! See, learning new skills is a good thing. :)

Anyway, I still much prefer the embroidery machine at school. I know I promised to show you a picture of the embroidery I did on the bag I made in school, and just haven't gotten around to it yet. So, at long last, here's a picture.
It has gotten all wrinkled from use, and I put the embroidery too far down, so the pocket comes over the picture-thingies, but other than that I'm very happy with it. :)

There has been very little knitting going on here, but I'm almost done with the new socks for the tiny one and then I'm going to continue working on my kneehighs. I've had problems concentrating on much of anything lately (those of you who know about the health thing might understand why..), so I've just been sitting on the couch in the evening with my knitting on my lap and not actually getting anything done. Annywaaay, I'll try to better my ways and have some actual knitting to show you next time. :)


  1. Embrodery can be very nice to make. I had * une période * where I was making this on everything.
    New knitting post on my blog * les tricots de Béatrice De *.

  2. Beatrice - I think embroidery looks very nice, and that's why I'm happy to learn it, I'm just not enjoying doing it. But that'll probably change when I get more practice, and get faster. :)

  3. Amybel - and hating every minute of it.. I think I'm about halfway done now.
