Some Accomplished, Some Still Just Sit

Some things completed.......

Season's birthday gift: Knitted bag lined with chambray and stuffed with handmade soaps.
It smelled REALLY good. I've had this done, but couldn't post it because she'd snoop it out on the blog and spoil her surprise. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Started and over halfway finished is the Needful Yarns knitting design contest entry. It's knitted and being blocked as you can see in the photo. Now all that's left is sewing it together and finding a FUN lining to go inside - maybe an orange batik? Hmmmmm

The directions are written, typed and saved to disk - that was my biggest hurdle in this whole process of getting an entry into the contest.
Here is a pair of baby booties I couldn't resist doing to put with Kate's baby shower gift. They came out so tiny that I don't know if ANY baby could wear them, but they were cute all the same. These are crocheted out of the Baby Teri to match the blankie.
And finally, the completed baby blanket for Kate. It came out very cool and will most definitely keep this pattern handy for other babes who come along.
Things not complete from list: No mockup for internet deal completed, no repairs done, and no brunch with friends as Bill came down with that nasty stuff that's going around on Sunday morning. So he pretty much stayed low all day and left me to do my thing. There just are not enough hours in the day, especially when we decided we needed to work at the shop on Saturday after all. THAT was not on my list. :)
