Slow progress

I haven't been progressing on some knitting goals as much as I had hoped. I finished a scarf for my dad's girlfriend but I haven't blocked it yet. Maybe I should do that today. It turned out lovely. I started a shawl for my grandmother, I am not even 1/4 through it, but almost. I did a couple test knits, and made some things for a Halloween swap package.

These are a pair of fingerless mitts I test knit for a fledgling designer. they are pretty cute.

Here is a brain slug I made for a swap. I did this 3 tiimes before I got it to where I liked it color wise and eye size....

I also knit a couple Halloween wash clothes that I didn't get a picture of....

My first sock pattern

I finished my sock pattern, and it was released September 1, 2011. It is the sock design for the FGF:socks group Sept/Oct. Designer KAL. I am very proud of the pattern. I am not sure there are too many people knitting it right now. It is a free Ravelry Download though. Are my seams straight

for me?

I don't think I have ever sewn an article of clothing for myself. So I found a cute skirt pattern, and made it this past week.

And this is me wearing it. Scary, but I thought I should add it... this is also me after losing 15 lbs this summer. Quite a bit more to go, but it's a start.

Earth and Sky mystery shawl

I participated in the westknits mystery shawl KAL, Here is my finished product. My colors came out ok, even though I picked them blindly without knowing the pattern. I wish I had the red and the natural colors switched, but this is the way it is.

Another school bag

After seeing how cute Isabelle's bag was, Madeline decided she wanted one too. I had some denim and said we could use that, thinking I wouldn't need to get so much interfacing, fusible fleece, etc. So we went off to buy lining fabric, she picked a cute burgundy with dragons and tigers. Here is the finished product. This one went a lot faster.

(and I got the pockets right)

"inside out"

I finished a westknits mystery kal shawl, I will post it tomorrow as it is blocking now, and I want to get outside pictures with it. I am sort of ambivalent about this project.
