I have been knitting up a veritable storm lately! Here's a few things I haven't posted here yet.

I posted this before, but it wasn't complete in those photos. It's a yoga mat bag, made for my sister last Christmas out of Knit Picks Main Line. It's the Namaste pattern from Knitty.

Next is a felted laptop case that I made for my friend/coworker Nicole. She requested a blue case with Zelda heart containers, so that is what I made. It's based on the Detlef-13 pattern and is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes.

This is my wedding clapotis, knit out of Malabrigo Silky Merino aka the best yarn ever. I LOVES IT.

Next is a set of booties and a hat that I made for the nephew of a friend of mine. The booties are the Baby Booties pattern by Carole Barenys, and the hat is from the Peapod Baby Set. I made both in Rowan RYC Cashcotton.

These are socks that I made for my mom for mother's day. She knows she's getting them because I was worried that the yarn was pretty rough, but she says it'll be fine. The pattern is River Rapids and the yarn is Trekking Pro Natura. No photos on her yet, since it isn't mother's day yet. Tongue

Finally one I just finished today- A hat requested by my lovely fiance, Cory. It's Koolhaas by Jared Flood and the yarn is Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool. I cast on 128 on 6's since the yarn is DK weight, and switched to 8's after the ribbing. It worked great. And I promise he loves it, I insisted on snapping photos while he was watching a movie.

Thanks for looking!

Oh my god, a Malabrigo Clapotis? That must be HEAVEN. I love the laptop bag too.

Not just any Malabrigo- it's the silky merino, it just kills me how soft it is. I can't even compare it to anything. Except possibly non-greasy butter. AMAZING.

I'm a nose and a smelly one at that.

You have lovely cables. And now I know what to do with the Koolhaas I just finished that didn't fit well on me. I just need to find a fiance!
