Haven't posted a lot lately, so I thought I would share some pics to show that I haven't entirely been slacking.

So, here's some yarn I've spun:

Some stuff I've knitted:

And other crafty things:

So, I am working on a knitted bag for a swap package. The bag itself is done, though it needs a handle of some sort. Here's my problem. I started to make a lining for it, but it's not working out at all. I feel kind of bad sending an unlined bag, but I'd rather do that than send one with a crappy, ugly lining in it. I'm making a little extra present to compensate, but I still feel less than good about it. I hate to send a substandard present. Hmmph.

In other news, I still have 3 people whose Christmas presents are not done. I am really trying to get them done by the end of the month, but I'm not sure how that will work out, so don't hold your breath or anything.

I'm making a Calorimetry, and I think that making headbands may be my new thing. It's fun, and pretty much everyone has gotten a pair of mittens from me, so I need to move on to a different object. I have an idea for a fair isle patterned headband kicking around in my head. I'll have to see if I can get it to work.

More Christmas Knitting!

Exchanged presents with kjpepper, sundart and sydneycat yesterday. Here's what they got:

sydneycat's scarf in a purple/black sparkly yarn. Simple dropped stitch pattern - this scarf is more decorative than functional.

Fingerless mittens for sundart. Pretty, self-striping yarn, which is nice and soft and squishy. Twisted rib stitch.

Fingerless mittens for kjpepper. Purple tweed yarn, also pretty soft and squishy. Twisted rib stitch.

Am still trying to finish up my remaining Christmas presents. I figure that at the rate I am going, I ought to be done by the end of the month. Woo-hoo!
