I finished off some items and still have a stack printed out to go through.  Between Christmas being around the corner, babies due and a wedding to look forward to, I'll never get to the ones I keep intending to do for me LOL.
This first one is called a Happy Hooker...it's to keep your cable hook handy so you won't drop it on the floor or in the cushions (like me LOL). 


Next are two baby hats and a pair of booties I did a while back


This one is a hat and booties I just finished up.  The colors are a raspberry and a French vanilla offwhite color


This one is a small bag big enough for a small ball of yarn for doing walk around knitting or just to take a small project like a dishcloth if you have to sit and wait.  I made it out of some leftover raspberry yarn from the hat and booties, and changed the pattern from using D-rings to knitting the strap to the bag.


That's all for now.  Now I need to get busy on another hat and bootie set  requested in light blue with white...do you think in all of the 4 big totes and 3 boxes of yarn that I would have any white?  Of course not...had to go get some today LOL, so now I'm ready to go.
Maybe I need to rethink the putting off of something for me...our furnace went out and the weather is cold and my hands were icy all day...maybe I should go ahead and make those fingerless mitts I keep wanting LOL.

I especially like the little read bag. I think kitting the staps to the bag is a good idea. Have you thought of making htis bag twice as big, then felting it? It might be really cool that way too..........but then I am a felting addict.

Thanks.  I'm working on a light blue and white hat and booties now.
Prickly Venus, I'm not into felting.  I got the pattern for the little bag here: http://knituition.blogspot.com/2007/04/wrist-yarn-holder.html

the cable needle holder pattern I got here:

and the patterns for the berries and cream set I found here:
