Finished Objects

Wow, it's been quite some time since I posted, hasn't it? It's been busy around here, mostly with stuff that is of no interest whatsoever (like work). There is some interesting news that I'll share soon. However, I have managed to catch a case of "finishitis", which isn't a bad thing. DD continues to do well showing and barrel racing, which has created some really good chunks of prime knitting time.

I finally found a button for the felted sunburst sling bag from earlier this year. Also got to the point on the cotton bag that I had knit enough and declared it done. The cotton bag is based on "Folds of Function" from Folk Bags, I just made it bigger and lined it with some fabric from the stash.

There are also finished socks. This summer's traveling socks are done, as are the reticulated socks from Sensational Knitted Socks.

I've even gotten back to the Mason-Dixon Nightie that I started ages ago. We'll just see how that case of finishitus holds up. If I can just get to the lace edging (and not start anything new until I finish it), I'll be all set!

In my travels (and I really haven't been getting out much at all lately), I found that someone had been "flamingoed". Don't you just love the baby flamingos? What a neat thing to do!

Al your projects look great, but my favorite is the white bag. I need to pull out my copy of Folk Bags.
