Bags and Socks and Mittens and Kittens

A busy week, and it's time for Red Hats tomorrow night! I haven't gone in a couple of months so am looking forward to that.

I've finished a couple more bags from the National Capital Cat Show:

A knitter decided she had to have two Mavis bags!

And I think she chose well, because these two are delightful!

I'm about to embark on another project (no, no, no startitis here...and Denial is a River in Egypt!)

That's Cat Mittens which Jocelyn made and I've been debating upon the yarn I'd use...I decided to go with the yarn called for (Dale of Norway Daletta), in colors to match my lightweight winter jacket (sandalwood and black). I picked up needles from Yarn Explosion and ran into Becky from my favorite (now closed) yarn shop...she's working there part-time while in the was so good to see her!

And tonight, I cast off (finally?) a pair of socks so I'd feel a bit more virtuous about starting another project:

Those are Berroco Sox in that fushia/brown colorway. I picked this up in June at The Crooked Stitch when we went down to Rocky Mount for WWKP Day. This might have stayed in my stash the least amount of time of any sock yarn...Or maybe not, considering the Berroco Comfort Sox that I picked up in Vermont and had on the needles the same day?

Anyway, The Tonk was very interested in the finished socks...

I think my Mommie is wonderful to get me such a nice 'sox lunch,' don't you?

No,'re not going to eat them!

That's a truly worthy mitten pattern. Of COURSE you needed to start that - cold weather's coming!

It was good to see you as well Sallee! I just can't get over how great you look and don't think I didn't notice that gorgeous Halloween bag you were carrying!

These bags are lovely as always and someone is very lucky to be getting them!!

See you again soon!!

Ooh, I do like those colors! That's a very nice choice - I can't wait to see them all knitted up :) And I'm very impressed that you finished up a project before starting another one; I'm not being nearly so disciplined these days...

I LOVE those mittens and I have the pattern too. I made her dog ones and modified the ears to look like cinnamon brown. I used knitpicks pallette and it worked great. They're really a fun knit.

Great socks! I have frequently considered knitting those squirrel mitts. Maybe I'll follow in your footsteps.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
