WIP - ing

The B4 bag in Noro is my activated project right now. The pattern has interesting handle placement for this bag, which will be felted. I am making this to send off to one of my sisters who needs a little boost right now. You can see assorted B4 bags and get info on the pattern at http://b4bag.blogspot.com/ It is a fun and fast knit! I am using size 10 needles. This is going to be smaller than I had expected, but I don't feel like ripping and restarting----onward and upward we go!




In basket #2 we have the Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket for DG#7. He is an active 2-year-old, so this hardy garter stitch is perfect for him! I'm using red for the main color and only white for striping. I decided to make fewer stripes than indicated in the pattern. My pattern is in EZ's book The Opinionated Knitter and is also available in other sources available at http://www.schoolhousepress.com/. Here is a page with notes for the BSJ: http://www.knitting-and.com/wiki/Baby_Surprise_Jacket




Oh, and yesterday morning...you know, the day after the Sox not the Rox won the World Series...it was time to check on ticket refund$, cancel the hotel room in Denver, cancel our reservations to board the dog-n-puppy show, and think...wow! the Rockies just saved us some serious $$$ !
