FO's & Big Bag Swap goodies

The knitting of the Kiss Purse has been completed. Now I have to felt it. I really like this purse. I have another Fair Isle purse in the que.
Here are my finished Monkey socks for my Swap pal. This yarn is soft and squishy. Mr Monkey likes them. He will be keeping the socks company on their trip to their new home.
And last, but not least...I received my package from my Big Bag Swal pal! Anita O. did an outstanding job on my bag. I really love the colors! And all the goodies that she sent along. There's sock yarn, Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool yarn, some tea, gummy bears and a Sudoku book and pen. Anita O., you are a great pal!

I'm finishing up my Math Geek Scarf. 2 triangles left and it's done, and I'm working on Meagan's skull scarf. 2.5 skulls left and its done. This will take care of everything that is "in progress" in Ravelry. But have no fear...there are plenty of projects in the que...just have to figure out which one I want to start. That's the hard part.

I'm still here...

and I have been working on a couple things:
Here is my Kiss Purse from Sally Melville's Book 3: Color. I wanted to try Fair Isle knitting and this seemed pretty easy. Hence the name...Kiss. As in Keep it Simple. I have about 20 more rounds to do. I should be finished with this by mid week. Then it needs to be felted.
I managed to finish one Monkey Sock for the Swap. I will crank the other out after my purse is done.
My bag for the Big Bag KAL & Swap has been felted. Now I need to find some goodies to put in it.
I have many other projects in the que. Just not enough time to knit them all. I'll try to post more pic's later in the week.

It's been a while...

but I have been working on a few things...
Here is the first half of Meagan's Skull Scarf. Illusion knitting is just too cool...I can't wait to start mine. I'll be using Hot Pink and Black for me.
Here is my finished and blocked scarf for my ISE6 Pal. I has originally started this a while back and decided to finish it for my pal. She likes purple. I hope she likes this scarf.
Here is Clapotis progress. I have 3 skeins of Lion and Lamb so I only did 5 rep's of the increase section vs 6. I think it will be plenty big enough for me.

And, last but not least, the yarn for my Monkey Sock Swap 4 pal arrived on Sat and knitting began on Sunday. This yarn is really soft. I hope to have the socks finished this week.

I will be felting the bag (shown below in an earlier post) this weekend. I'll post pic's next week.
