Neckwarmer and Market Bag

I have actually finished some things! There's a neck warmer (from the luxery one-skein wonders book) that is for a class I'm hoping to teach at the Tangled Skein in July. It is made out of less than 1/2 of a ball of gorgeous hand-painted wool.

I also made a market bag (sunshine string bag) for Mom for her birthday. She thought it was a tank top at first and was relieved when I told her what it was. ;-) Both very nice patterns but boring doing the same stitch pattern over and over.

Thorpe - FO

I finished the earflap hat I promised to a friend at work for a Silent Auction. It took less than a skein of bulky wool and was fun to knit. It is a little small (size medium) for an adult head so I'll be making more in larger sizes for gifts this coming year.

Brenna's Bella hat

This is a gift for Miss Brenna - one of my favorite Twilight addicts. ;-) The hat on Bella is above, my "version" is below. Sorry for the model but all my human models scattered this morning when I brought out the camera!

Let there be light!

After fighting with the fluorescent light in our closet for way too long. Tom has rescued us and replaced the ballast and both bulbs. It was so nice this morning to pick out my shoes this morning by sight rather than by touch! :-)
