Another finished project

There is always a puzzle in progress on our vacations.....I kinda hogged this one....loved it cuz it was VERY challenging, 550 pieces with lots of shading

Accomplished Tasks on vacation

FINISHED....My Tote ready to felt....and with a pocket for the inside
NO, not muddy clothes, this is the wool felting(in a pillow case) in the machine
ahaaahhhhhh, finished and soaking up the North Carolina sun.... ;-)
A beautiful ending to a wonderful knitting day....

Now...if we can only figure out how to move the house on the left so we have a straight shot of the sunsets....it is better on the beach, but I was too lazy to walk down there.
I am 3/4 of the way finished with the baby blanket, and forgot to bring the instructions to do the toe on the socks I am working on....next blog! Happy Spring

When it snows....the paint brush works....

While my hubby painted the foyer, Golden Fleece, it snowed outside and I worked on the Eileen Tote. The foyer is finished, the snow has melted and the knitting continues on....till I felt it.

what a loser....

I can't believe I posted the baby blanket TWICE....I have gotten further on the blanket....

Multi-Task Knitting......

This is a baby blanket I am making for a friend who is due this week... I made up the pattern, let's hope I don't screw it up!! ;-) an elongated basket weave.

Here is the other project that I am working on....the Eileen Tote by Kate Jackson Knits....LOVE the colorwork .
A close up of the colorwork....it is so rich.....it is for an auction next month....but I may keep it for myself...

Look inside to see the wonderful colors,
This is the bottom of the Tote.....And......this is the AWESOME metal bucket that "hides" the Eileen Tote while under construction.... found it at Tuesday Morning......one of my favorite stores.
