January OPAM Finishes

OPAM (One Project A Month) finally got me sewing. My finishes this month were:

I made a little wallet for gift cards so I don't lose them. This worked up so quickly and is adorable. It fits perfectly in the pocket in my purse. I can see whipping a few more of these up for gifts.

Then I finished a scarf that I love. I bought the yarn when I was in Lancaster, PA this fall. This was the first time I knitted with wool rather than acrylic. I think my stitches look much nicer and I was able to get the correct gauge. I miss not having a project next to me when I am watching television so I had better order some more yarn!

My last project was the table runner for the Color of the Month. Boy did I learn a lot from this ...mainly that I have to pay more attention to detail. I can't wait to see what Maria has in store for February but I'm betting it's red or pink!

It feels so good to be sewing again ...thanks Pat and Kris for this challenge.
