Finished and Not Finished

As I'm typing this post, I'm sitting on the couch with the laptop and a cat all in my lap. It's a little challenging. My arms are outstretched to reach the keyboard and are on either side of my cat. She sometimes will give me a kiss on my outstretched arm to remind me that she's there and she needs a scratch on her head.

Here's the next framed up piece of cloth in the process of drying. I've been trying to do a new one every day. Having fun with this process. The part I dislike most about it is the heat setting and standing with the iron for what feels like forever.

Here is the progress on my sweater. This is the back and I'm up to the arm hole shaping.

Here is a fingerless glove I knit. Yes there's only one. After I completed it, I decided I'm not happy with the fit, it's a little loose on my hand. Too big? Or is that how they are supposed to fit? So I'm undecided at this point if I'll make another this size or rip it apart and start over and see if I can adjust the pattern.

And I've finished the knit pouch. I'm rather happy with how it turned out. Here's the front.

And here's the inside. I used a handmade polymer clay button on the flap and velcro holds it closed.

  1. Check out this pattern for a fingerless glove, Maine Morning Mits...

    I like the fit and I am nearly done with the second glove.

  2. Love these fabrics that you're creating Terri and that pouch is pretty cool.

  3. You are so busy all the time!
    I like what you've done.
    As for the glove - (please don't be insulted) - does your gauge match that of the instructions?
    Maybe you could use a smaller needle size.
    I saw a spinning magazine at Borders the other night. One of the cover stories is on spinning ergnomics, etc. You might want to check it out since you are doing all this hand work.
    Thanks for sharing your eye candy!

  4. Wow you've made great progress on the knitting!

  5. All I can say about your work is WOW! I love the purse and everything else, and really cracked up at your description of typing with a cat on your lap!!

  6. Great knit pouch and fabric creation!! I just love your boundless energy and talent. You will be wearing that new sweater in no time.
