Sill Working on the Christmas Knitting

I don't update much because I don't want to unless I have a picture. And it takes me forever to actually get around to uploading the pictures to the computer....Hence the reason why there are such huge gaps in entries.

however, my needles have been busy.

my last project finished in 2005 was this:



Winter Femme by Diana. I used Lionbrand Wool-Ease in Rose Heather. This was part of the Christmas present for my baby sister.

I started it Christmas eve night, right before bed (just did the ribbing) and the rest of it was done on Christmas day. I wasn't able to get it done by the time my sister left that night. I finish did about an hour later.

This was my 1st cable project and I LOVE it. I love the way Diana writes her patterns, with little check boxes for each row and very easy to read.

But I don't think my sister will like the way it points up, so I'm going to frog back the very top and do a bunch of decreases to flatten it out a bit...So this isn't really done.

But isn't the cables super cute? I LOVE just looking at it.

Another Christmas present I finally finished is the scarf for my brother:



Wavy from knitty

I used Wool-Ease again. I can't remember the name of the color. It's an olive green.
This turned out soo soft.

This took forever because I was working on my SIL's wavy at the same time, but then just concentrated on this one to finish it. It's very long and I love the way it turned out.





This one is for my SIL. I figured I've give them matching scarves since they got married this last year. My brother looks really good in the green and it matches his eyes. And this blue is her favorite color.

Isn't that the prettiest blue you've ever seen? I'm on the 7th repeat of 9. So I'm almost done with it.












and last but not least, I designed a felted bag for my other SIL's birthday (a few weeks late).




I have felted it again since this picture. It's now the perfect size, big enough to put a Harry Potter book in it (that's what I used to block it). I need to add a button and I really need to get a sweater shaver (I think that is what it's called), cuz it's super fuzzy.

I'll post a picture and talk about how proud of this I am later when it's all finished.
