Hey... whatcha doing?

So.... I've started this sweater this week for my little friend Grace. She's only 6 months old. This will be her Christmas present. Since she doesn't read yet, I think it's prettsy safe to post this up on the blog. Below is the back. It looks very big right now but my gauge is correct for the 9-12 month size and since it's my first baby sweater, I will just have to carry on and go with it.

Below is a picture of what the sweater will look like. The colors are very different from what I purchased and as I continue on with the knitting, you will see them. Grace likes ladybugs and that is why I picked this sweater kit. I picked this up at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. The company that makes this is Peace Fleece.
Also, below is the progress on the blanket that I have been working on. It's moving right along but since I don't have an intended recipient for it. I don't feel bad putting it to the side to work on Grace's sweater.
I worked on the sweater just a small amount this weekend since we went fishing on Sat and Sunday which kept me from knitting. I did, however, knit in the car on the way there so all in all, it was a good weekend. Sure wish I had just one more day.

OMG.... This weekend we are in Charlotte, North Carolina and we went to a street fair in Marshall and I found this. The bag is absolutely beautiful and it's hand made by a knitter! It is the most "knitting functional" bag I've ever seen. See below! I told these 2 ladies that they simply must have a website! They can't keep these a secret for too long!

The bag is just the perfect size. It isn't too deep where you cannot find anything in it! I love the colors and the prints that they have used.
I love the "Knit"... it's embroidered and it looks great.
Here is the inside. It has wonderful side pockets as well as a zipped section for something special.

The bag came with four other items of interest. These beautiful smaller matching bags for your knitting notions! I love them....

And look at this gem! This bag is a wonderful place to put your yarn for the current project you're working on. The top has elastic to keep it closed but not so much so that it allows your yarn to pass through while you knit! Here it is holding my yarn for the blanket!

Oh, progress has been made on the blanket... 6 hour drive to North Carolina will do that.
