A little knitting

I have joined a group of talented women and we stock on the 15th and 30th of each month. Well, today is my debut and I have some serious last-minute knitting to finish up here.

But here are some things that I HAVE accomplished ... I had realized that I call myself the knitting maniac, but I never show anything on here for it. I really AM a knitting maniac... I promise. I just don't want to bore you to tears with my items.

Not to infringe upon a product's name, here is a "personal music player" carrier...


and up close

I am in the process of knitting up a really cool bag (at least I hope it ends that way when I get it seamed together and felted. I need to decide what the handles will look like. I have some here but need to determine if they will work or not. I am hoping that they do because I really don't want to knit anything for it. I will post a picture of that later. Hopefully.

I also have some finger puppets that I need to get done ... we will see if that happens, too.

So there you go ... some proof that I actually DO knit. I promise, I really do.

On the scrapbooking side, I REALLY want to make an altered clock like the one on Donna Downey's site. I am considered in my little circle of friends the altering queen. I LOVE to alter things. I love to change the ordinary into something with just a little more pizzaz. And that clock I am drooling ALL over ...

Check it out:

Dude. DID not! Gotta go read...

I know. I am rather enjoying this, and the fact that the Monkey's preschool is closed. preschool was important for the first kid. This one ... not so much. now I know why parents of multiple kids would sometimes opt out of taking their last kid to preschool.

the carrier is awesome. I'm going to ask my sister to make me one for me. I need one to keep everything in. I'm assuming the little pocket is for ear buds, or something of the like.

Also, I'm totally jealous, I wish I could knit more than just scarfs. That's the end of my talent, but my sis can knit anything! she's amazing. PS - that clock is way cute, how do I place my order?

Jenn... that clock is on Donna's website. She is teaching a class like that at some scrapbook store somewhere. I can't take credit for that thing.

yes. That little pocket is for the ear buds... pretty cool, huh? It doesn't take much to knit up at all.
