I'm sorry, I know this is very serious and I'm sure it was an incredibly emotional time for you but I am absolutely cracking up at the thought of a tennis ball wearing a little baby hat!!! :

Memiles (I'm sorry, I missed you real name) - I know the Little Turtle Knits soakers have a preemie size in the patterns!

I'm knitting a version of the French Market bag...

I'm loving bags right now.

I'm working on:
- an EWS for Ian in Blackberry Ridge's "English Garden" (yum!)
- the "Chinese Charm bag" from SnB Handbook in recycled silk (I've finished the knitting but need to sew the liner & attach the handles). It's beautiful, and alas, I have already promised it to my mother. Guess I'll have to knit another one for me.
- a work scarf (as in, not for warmth but for show) for me in a gorgeous Noro Silk Garden colorway

I also have the yarn, pattern, needles, etc. for:
- longies for Ian in Manos's "Prairie" colorway
- a tank top for me in Knit Pick's Shimmer yarn, "maple leaf" colorway
- tons of socks for me in various colorways of Knit Pick's sock garden

And I'm hoping to get for my birthday the yarn for some seriously cute intarsia mittens. If only my dh read these posts.

And I want to make half of the patterns in IK's fall 05 issue. Oh, and my mil was admiring the silk purse, so I think I'll make one for her for Christmas.

So much to knit, so little time. :LOL

I just finished some baby booties. My first ones ever actually.

And now I am making myself a pair of cuffed bootie slippers. I am nervous, but it seems to be going well. I am almost ready to decrease, whoo hoo! Dd is working her first pattern ever... a hat for her baby doll (who also is wearing the baby booties I just finished).

How old is she? I started to teach friend's dd how to knit but didn't quite finish, hope Mom picked up where I left off... I'd love to do it with my class, but I am never sure what age is good. I was about 8 when I learned...

*sigh*... have I gotten any of my works in progress finished or even worked on? No. Have I started totally random new projects that don't even have a deadline? Yup.

So, add to the list:

Baby hat to match P pants (started and finished last night)
3 baby hats for triplets I don't even know

Dangit, get back to work on the sweater!

Megan, I will be thinking of you & your cousin.

I just fininshed an LTK soaker that I knitted up w/ my first attempt at koolaid dyeing. It turned out pretty well--orangey, pinky.

Now, I'm working on a Marsan watchcap for my Grandpa in Manos del Uruguay105. I went to buy yarn for it yesterday & nothing else felt quite as nice. I've seen you all talk about it & didn't know what it was. Clearly, I found it irresistable though, as I have already knitted dd a ribby hybrid in it. I can't let it become a habit, or I won't be able to do as many projects.

She's 11.5 She and I both started knitting last year just after she turned 10. She really enjoys it! When I get a little more advanced in my knitting I thought about doing a little class too. I think 8 would be great for a lot of kids.

"What's on my needles?"

Two rows of orange acrylic yarn my great-grandma gave me so I could learn. Once, I get this down maybe I can make a doll scarf

A square potholder and scarf were my first projects. A bookmark is easy too

Well, I did it again - I've again ditched the EWS in favor of another project. This one is the "Purl Scarf" from _Last Minute Knitted Gifts_. I'm knitting it with Manos, Fusion, and Shimmer from Knit Picks and it's going to be gorgeous! So much for Ian's soaker in Manos, since that's the yarn that I'm using. And it's a good thing that the soaker I'm knitting for him is the EWS - b/c by the time I finish it, he's going to be way bigger than he was when I started it. At least I've finished the waistband.

I am using several different kinds of BRIGHT GREEN yarn to make me a felted wallet. (um, am I the only one whose stash is actually BRIGHT GREEN?)

I am adding a non-felting border so the difference between the different fibers being felted won't be as severe. Just trying to decide uh...between the different non-felting BRIGHT GREEN yarns I have.

Just finished a uh...BRIGHT GREEN draw string bag. (my second BRIGHT GREEN purse *L)

I um..have a BRIGHT GREEN *problem* I tend to buy a skein of every cool BRIGHT GREEN yarn I see.

Not all those who wander are lost

due to teething toddler and messy house I only have 1 project on the needles:

Autumn/Halloween Wonderpants for dd with 2 -ply targhee. I am on the waistband, and I think I may start over...I really want the waistband to be snug this time.
