And I got this new knitted bags book. It is soo cool, I am going to have lots of fun with this book. This clutch was in teh book, it was super quick. the patter called for kid mohair, but I used Wildfoote (1 strands). The gauge worked out fine. I also lined it....

Guilty!! This is how I found my son after walking into the family room from being in the bedroom for a while. I thought he was playing peacefully. He was playing alright. Look at the evidence on his legs and face. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury ------ Guilty!!!!

Here is my creative daughter. She was dragging out constuction paper, markers and glue today, and I didn't know why. I was a bit peeved I must admit because it was everywhere. I told her to take it to the kitchen so she didn't mess up the carpet. When I went into the kitchen, I saw her barbie beach scene. What a crafty girl!! :) Daughter after my own heart.

This little purse is my own creation. I went to the yarn shop and saw a purse with the Green cotton yarn, and then found the white & colorful yarn in the bargain drawer. I love a bargain!! I thought it would go well togheter, and it did. I have enough for another purse.

And this is it after fulling. You can see all the stiches merged together. It was supposed to be with the knit side on the outside, not the purl side, but I did the 3 needle bind off on the wrong side. Also - I don't know why it is rounder on one side than the other. But that's ok. It's not perfect, but it is cool for my first bag!

My first knitted sock!! I went to my LYS this weekend, and was wearing one of my ponchos. After a long conversation, they recommended a sock patter made with worsted yarn. I was always afraid of socks because they seemed too hard, I didn't understand the gusset, and couldn't figure out how to use dpns. But, she assured me the pattern was easy and you just have to do one to know how it works. She was right! Plus, using worsted means I didn't have so many stiches. This is actually a little big since I didn't have 6 dpns, just 7s. But it worked. I made them a little shorter Love them!!
