pictures... ohh so many pictures!

FINALLY they're here!!! pictures!!!! without further ado.....

this is a picture of my finished oregon tote bag.... i actually ended up changing the pattern, it had really funky straps that went through the bag, and there were holes... i didnt like it, so i just binded off the edges and every other row on the side decreased until i liked the width and knit until they were the length i liked, and sewed them together... voila!!! ... heres a close up of the stitching/pattern, which i also through in there myself...pretty isnt it?? i love how its got that raised stitch almost on the corner... it does that on all four corners as well... thats actually the reason i decided not to felt it, because i like that stitch... but i am going to sew a lining into it so its a bit more sturdy

this is the felted cat toy i made from the winter issue of Vouge Knitting... it was really simple, im pretty sure it was just simple garter stitch, but it could have been stockinette, so dont hold me too it, but i just knit, then felted cut the shape out and sewed a little stitching along the edges, aded a little X for an eye and attached a long loopy string so it hangs from a doorknob... my cat absolutely LOVES it! ... heres a close up of the fish....

i think its cute....



this is just a picture of the dishcloth i made... i found my Grandmother's old pattern and that was actually the very first pattern i followed... anyway this is the pattern i used for the dishcloths i gave away at christmas, though i didnt get any pictures of those, so this will have to do

hmmm okay, the rest of my pictures wont upload... maybe you can only do so many pure post, im not sure... but i guess this will have to do for now, and ill post the rest tomorrow because it is quite late... i didnt realize what time it was... but until tomorrow.....

Happy Knitting!

Wow, I LOVE the tote bag! When I click on the picture upload button the little window won't come up :( It makes me sad.
