Just keep knitting....

Yep, that's what I've been trying to do. On and off all weekend actually. Kept my mind busy, you know so I didn't think that a certain someone was leaving today to start his sophmore year of college...

In fact I went from this on Thursday evening....
Boheme Baby Sweater

To this as of Sunday evening.....still have to measure, but I may be done with it. Then just the picot binding.
Boheme Baby Sweater
Boheme baby sweater in Cotton Ease, and yes those are the new Zephyr tips. I really like them for knitting on cotton so far. I only ordered a few tips as I like my mishmashed set of interchangeables.
Cotty Sock
When I wasn't knitting on the sweater, I've been working on my Cotty socks gusset decreases, yeah, I had more done, but while I was getting a pedi on Friday...I forgot to do the decreases so a tinking had to be done...

Oh, my newest bag...
Chicken bag
Love it!!!

Look at the inside coordinating fabric too!
Inside of Chicken bag
Custom order by OliviaKnits. Yes, I love her cute lil' bags, and no I have no urge to sew any for myself....it's nice to let someone else do the sewing!

Love your Boheme. I knit that a while back for a gift, totally cute sweater.

Great little project bag! Love the colors of it.

I've been dying to try the Zephyr tips. Great for more than just cotton?

Aww, it's tough to send him back to school, huh? But hopefully it will be a little easier than last year - because you know what to expect?? At least you got a lot of knitting done. Hope it helped.

I love the bug fabric on the bag for the Cottys. I'm very intrigued by the Zephyr tips and may have to try one or two sizes before too long. I'm about to start dabbling in bags. Wish me luck!

I have that Boheme pattern in my queue, can't wait to see how yours turns out!

What are those Zephyr tips made of? Are they plastic? Clear acrylic?

Sandra said...

such a cute sweater! Lola would apriciate it (from me, of course)!
But the bag - wow!

Little sweater is too darn cute! You have been knitting some pretty cool things here lately. Great fun bag and pretty nice looking socks too.

sorry I'm way late on this, but i love that bag! I think I saw that fabric somewhere & thought of my mom she loves chickens.

Those s1ocks are lovely too, and the sweater is adorable!
