Finally, something is getting done around here. Here are some finished items (unfortunately two of them still need soul mates...)

Mom's Fuzzy Scarf

Lion Brand Fun Fur (white) and Woolease (pink) with a slit near one end. My own pattern.

Booga Bag

Made from Noro Kueryon (of course) and Black Cascade 220. Pattern is here.

"Magic Strips" Sock Yarn Mitten 1/2

Lion Brand Magic Stripes yarn, in "JellyBean stripes". The pattern is from Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns (or something like that).

Toe-Up Sock 1/2

Plymouth Jaquard sock yarn, toe up on two circs. No real pattern used, just techniques I've read about along the way. Its my first sock EVER! Isn't it cool? Doesn't it fit well? (big grin!)

I am really happy with everything here. Besides making dishcloths for Christmas, I'm not starting any new projects until I have the second sock and mitten finished.

Hey that reminds me, I got the cutest little needles to make dishcloths on. The are from Red Heart and are called kid's starter needles. Size 7, red plastic, and only about 7 inches long. Perfect! Plus, they are just about weightless, so that is great - much better than the metal ones I was using for dishcloths. I found them at Ben Franklin craft store (who by the way has a Great selection of really real yarn! I was shocked!).

Going camping in Baraboo, Wisconsin this weekend for a class - wish me good weather!
