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.
