I made 20 for an asian-themed bridal shower. Smiley

I got my package from bluefrue (Sandy) today!!! It's amazing!!! Smiley

Using sewing skills that are out-of-this-world she made me this gorgeous messenger bag:

And when I looked inside I was blown away! Look at all the things I found:

And what made it even more fun was that it was all hidden in the MILLION pockets this bag has. It's so awesome!

And cutest of all:

Sandy really listened to my questionnaire answers and put together a totally thoughtful package - I'm shopping to spoil her this weekend . . . Smiley

I knit up one of these cuties for my brother-in-law's Christmas gift. It worked up really quickly - under 2 days. I decided to knit it in the round instead of flat which worked pretty good, although there was a lot of time spent doing things to prevent tangling. Smiley

Ta da. I finished this up over the weekend.

The sleeves look very pretty but they only compound the crazy numbers of ends I have to weave in now. Argh.

off topic: ZiuZiu: I love the soaps in your etsy shop. I've been knitting washclothes like a crazy for Christmas gifts and I think I'm going to order a bunch of your soaps to match them. Smiley

sittenkitten: This second sweater I'm making is similar to the one I made for Emily. It's naturals, greens and purples, but uses a little more green I think. The colors are:

Silver Birch
New Leaf
Lace Pink
Orchid Pink
Lotus Blosson

Plus for the sleeves, I did the stockinette in color # 4 and then striped the ribbing with all 7 colors. Just 6 rnds of each color gives you your 12" sleeve. See:

And on Emily's sweater I accidently did the increases on the 'top' and only later realized that it would be weird one way or the other so it's no big deal.

6  Baby Pinwheel Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by megaknits on: August 12, 2006 05:38:40 AM
I turned half of this:

Into this:

Well, not the baby part, but this doesn't seem like the appropriate place to get into how she was made. Smiley It took just over a week and this pattern is a dream to knit up. There are lots more photos and discussion on my blog.

My yarn arrived today! Woo hoo. Unfortunately, I figured out this morning that I don't have any of the needles necessary to start (but I could make the arm cuffs). And the baby wasn't up to visiting Joann's after Michael's didn't have any of the needles. Sad Tomorrow we'll pick them up though.

I'm not sure if I want to go light to dark or dark to light colorwise. Any suggestions?

Woo hoo! I got my package from girlfriday today and it is amazing!! Here's some photos of my presents:

Fresh from the box.

Everything. Smiley

Close-up of stitchmarkers.

I'd asked for sock yarn and double-pointed needles and boy did she listen. She packed one skein of Trekking XXL, a skein of Opal sock yarn and a skein of one of her favorite local yarns in a yummy coral colorway. Plus needles and cutie stitchmakers. Smiley

Thanks girlfriday!! You ROCK!!

I rec'd my tote from shelikesstars over the weekend and I absolutely LOVE it!! Pics took a few days, but here they are:

In action:

I'd asked for a library tote if possible and this is an incredible answer to that request. The tote is sturdy and huge! In the second picture it's holding two trips to the library worth of books for me and my book-happy daughter. It's a winner!

Thanks shelikesstars! Smiley
