March socks & Market Squares

I decided that I liked Entrelac so much that I wanted to make myself a bag to carry my knitting around I'm knitting a knitting bag. It's the Market Square bag from "Bags - a Knitter's dozen". I'm using 5 colors of Cascade 220 and it will be felted. I'll post more progress pics later.
And since March starts tomorrow here is the inspiration for my March socks...Peeps. Pink & yellow Peeps to go with my pink & yellow sock yarn for Easter. It's Claudia's Handpainted & the color is called "Jill's Pink". I'm going to use the "Groovy" sock pattern from Sockpixie...with a couple of modifications. I'll post more about that later.

In other Knitting Knews...I signed up for the ISE6. I already know what pattern I want to do...just waiting to get my pal's preferences to see what colors she likes/dislikes. Matchups don't don't go out until Mar 17, so I have a couple of weeks to finish the socks and work on the Market Squares bag...and I haven't forgot Lady E. I'll try to post some progress pics this weekend!
Happy Knitting!

Finished Booga Bag & Lady E progess

Here is my finished Booga Bag! Felted, grommets added and poof! It's done and in use. I love this pattern!
There has been progress on Lady E. I worked on her this weekend. So far I have used 2 complete skeins on Kureyon...8 more to go.
In other Knitting Knews...I'm working on something that's been bouncing around in my head since I started Lady E. I'll post some pic's later if all turns out as expected. Stay tuned!

Booga bag #7

Here is my Booga Bag #7. This one is for me! All that's left to do is the felting and the grommets. Yarn: Noro Kureyon #95. Started 15 Feb 08. Finished 18 Feb 08.
In other Knitting Knews: I just started my 1st full size Lady Eleanor Stole using Noro Silk Garden. I had previously played around with a scarf size Lady E., but I didn't like that yarn I was using for it. I'll post some progress pics and more details later. The Retro Redux Shrug is waiting patiently...I'm well over the half-way point on it.

My Booga Bag!

I decided to make my Booga Bag this weekend so I can felt it when I go to my Mom's next weekend. Her washing machine felts really quick. I made six of these for gifts this past Christmas (see earlier posts) and held off on making mine. The retro redux shrug is coming along...I'll post some progress pic's later. I should have it completed by next weekend.
