Cindy is Finished

She's actually been finished for a few weeks now. She's a little too snug for me to feel comfortable wearing her. Another knitter expressed interesting in purchasing her from me, but she turned out a little too snug for her, too. So, I guess I'll have to use her as an incentive to lose some weight. I am pleased with how she turned out. The quality seems a little better than some of my other tops.

First Toe-up Sock

This is my first toe-up sock. I tried it on to see if I can stop making increases. I'm still not sure.

Felted Bag

This is the bag before felting. I didn't make it as long as the pattern suggested. Not only was I tired of working on it, I just decided I didn't want it that tall.

After I felted the bag, I laid it flat as suggested. Then I decided the inside wasn't drying fast enough, so I placed it over the tray stand.

It didn't shrink vertically as much as I thought.

Cooper and Orange Thing

Lori teasing Cooper and Hannah knitting prone.

When I took Cooper out this morning, I saw this interesting orange thing in the front yard.

Is it some kind of mushroom, fungus, weed?

It sort of looks like a couple of carrots, with some ugly green dip on the end.
It's difficult to tell from the photo, but they are kind of porous.

It almost looks evil.

I've never seen anything like this before. If anyone has a clue what this is, please let me know.

Phone Cover

I made this felted phone carrier recently; a spur-of-the-moment project after seeing the pattern at Meetup. It's cute but I'm not entirely satisfied with it. I was hoping for something that would allow me to carry the phone safely with easy access. This strap is too long to loop around my purse strap and too short for me to sling it across my shoulder. So, I knitted a different one yesterday while I was riding in the car to KC for a work training. I just need to get a button and then I will post a pic.

Baby Things

This is the third knitting project of Hannah, whom I taught to knit recently. These booties are for a neighbor who just had her third daughter.
The booties in this picture are Hannah's second knitting project. She then made a bonnet to go with them. It seems that the bonnet was too small, so she made a bigger one. It doesn't have its ribbon yet.

A closeup of the green booties.

Both be-ribboned bonnets.
