In Which I Heal My Battered Ego

Not that the ribbed yoke sweater has exactly won, but it hasn't exactly lost either.  We have, for the moment, declared a truce and are ignoring each other's existence.


However, I did have some crafting time this weekend and thought I might spend it with the Kimono Shawl






but someone beat me to it.  And let's face it, I am never that cute while knitting, so I let Theo have it for the day and went digging in the WIP bin. 

I started this sometime last year, and the body just needed a few inches on the body, which I finished with NO frogging, swearing, or re-editing of a pattern (which made a refreshing change) and

I have started a sleeve!  It's a simple pattern and will make great portable knitting, so it is the current favorite project, but it's going to take a little while to finish, and I was in need of some instant gratification, so I finished a few more towels

(Obviously, I'm loving this design), and cut out and embroidered some felt gift bags

and I even figured out how to enlarge a design while embroidering--on purpose and everything!  And the finished product.....

Take THAT ribbed yoke pullover!!!!

I am nothing if not childish....
