No one else had started it so i figured i would go ahead and do so!

I have a few projects waiting for the needles. The one i completed half of today i cant show you as its for a fellow Craftster but im super excited about it.
The next thing i've been working on is my step fathers sweater. i have to get a measurement of the width of his favorite sweater before i can start but here is the swatch:



now the next thing isn't knitting but it's knitting related and i'd love to know if you all would like a tutorial on how to make them ( if you have sewing skills) the top has a snap top that allows it to snap back into the closed position so your yarn does not fall out they can be adjusted in width and depth to what ever you would want:



A ball of fingering weight in there:


how it looks closed:

I'm still resisting casting on for Annis in order to get my sweater done. I've been working on the sleeves almost to the exclusion of all other knitting:



I'm 18 rows from the cap shaping at this point. I'm still working on both sleeves at once, I've just stacked them for the photo. Smiley

Other than that I've been working on the doll panties. They don't look like much at the moment so I haven't photographed them.

I finished nessy but can't post the finished product as it's for a swap. I'm still working on those socks but I've also started a yoga mat bag (namaste pattern on knitty) and I finally cast on for my burnished tunic and knit about 2 inches of that.I hope I can finish it before Monday to wear for my engagement pics, if not I already have a knit piece picked out to wear (bought, not hand made but still knit) I'll be starting some smaller projects for a swap this week or next week. Sorry about no pics this week. I don't have the time to take them, e-mail, and post them... Craftster really needs an app!

P.S. Love your work! That cabled sleeve looks gorgeous and the bags are cute. I sew up my own drawstring bags so I can throw in my counter while I travel so they don't fall out. I have a smaller lined one that I use for sock knitting as it holds two tiny balls perfectly and I can throw my socks in with the yarn while travelling.
