Okay, so I don't know if anyone but me wants to see any of these, but I'm proud of them and need to show other people who get it (as oppsed to my in-laws who don't get why I don't just go out and buy everything at Macy's).
So I learned to knit when I was prego, but my hormones made me want to throw the needles across the room.  So...here we are 2 years later and I finally am hooked. I started with the bag and scarf:


and was pleasantly surprised.  So then I thought I should try a different kind of scarf and I worked on this lengthwise woven-pattern number:


And I know most people make a gazillion scarves, but I wanted something bigger and cozier, so I went for the softest, coziest, fluffiest yarn I could find and made this wrap with a crochet edging of a metallic silver and gold:



Then I got really ambitious on a long vacation and decided to start a sweater for my son.  It was a pretty simple hoodie, and I was so amazed when I put it over his head (with a little more pushing over the head than I was hoping for due to a too-tight casting off problem), and it fit!


So that's it.  Now I don't know what to make.

These all look very excellent, you sure have been busy! Your bag is so cute and would look so kick @$$ when wearing it with the scarf. Cute combo!

The hoodie and its model are really cute!  I like the purse and scarves as well. 

I came up with a response for people who respond "but, you can BUY (insert whatever it is I'm making) in a store you know."  (most of the time these people are men)

I said to the last guy who said this to me:  Have you ever grilled a steak?  You set up your grill, you take your time with the steak, you make sure it's done how you want it, you enjoy the process?  (he's nodding this whole time.)  That, is why I knit/spin/whatever.  I enjoy the process/end result of making things myself. 

(Alternate analogies I came up with so far are:  working on a car yourself, building something yourself (deck, fence etc), making supper, baking a cake...)

Sorry to hijack your thread.  Great work on the knitting.  As for what to make next, a sweater for you!

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Great work!

I love a big cozy wrap too.  Great metallic edging!

Is the hoodie a wallaby by any chance?
