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....

The white sweater looks like huge fun, the cat is adorable...but it sounds like the yoke sweater is trying to psych you out! Don't let it win, Toni!

What is it about kitties when they put their paw over their eye/nose that turns normal adult to mush?! CUTE!
Oh - watch for your friendly UPS guy.....just saying........
