Very cute, Lady S!

That's also perfect for apres beach, here in SoCal.

I gotta get this book already!

I wanted to share the Ribbon Scarf I made from Handknit Holidays.  I used Patons Lacette yarn, just a little over 1 ball.  I love all the projects in this book!  Grin

my flap top mittens are becoming a disaster.  One of them is perfect, and the other one is the same length, but it's cuff is too short, and it's fingers are too long.   Embarrassed

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

I love it! I wanted to try this but thought it might be a pain having to use two needles. Did you find that challenging or annoying? I am easily annoyed ha ha!

I tried the gloves from this book but I have a hard time with DPNs. I will probably try again as soon as I finish that fabulous counterpane bag!

I am working on the stash busting felted bag............. I can't think of it's actual title right now. So far it looks a little freakish..we'll see when it's done.

I made the flap top mittens for my boyfriend with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted with size 5's. The only problem I had is that I've been using the same generic mitten pattern for years and kept reverting back to that instead of using the pattern. That being said, i did modify the pattern, making a more graduated thub gussett, a softer, more rounded top, and ribbed the part around the hands insted of letting it roll.





And he loves 'em! Wears them every day. He even picked out and bought the yarn for me to make these with!

Really nice mittens, and the colors are pretty yet manly!

I just finally got this book and I can't wait to start making stuff!

I knit the counterpane little purse.  I don't have the book in front of me, so I don't remember it's real name.  I was halfway done with sewing the zipper and lining in when this girl I know spilled pop all over it!  It doesn't seem to have hurt it, though, and now it has a nice Vanilla Pepsi scent to it!


the picture really doesn't do it justice.  I used Lion brand chenile.  The thin chenile.  I also knitted the star flower out of the chenile, but I don't have a picture of it.

I finished this a week ago and I forgot to post pictures here.  I've already gotten a ton of compliments on it!  Made from Lamb's Pride Worsted in Kiwi, with size 8 needles and only 4 repeats of the pattern.

See my blog for more pictures!
