A few things finished at once.











I've not had a mad burst of activity, just several things all seem to have been finished at once.
At the top there is another scarf from the Knitting New Scarves book. Both yarns were supposed to be the same thickness, and it's obvious they aren't, however they are different textures so make it interesting. I only had a small amount of the colourful yarn, so it is only "muffler" length. I will be knitting another in more suitable yarn, but I like experimenting, so that was fun.
The second picture is Cookie Monster, I saw a crocheted version of him on Craftster, and decided to try to make my own knitted version. The only thing I'm not happy with are the eyes, as they are a little on the small side, but as I used long eyelash type yarn, it's practically impossible to pull back.
Third picture is of stitch markers I made , for when I decide to knit something other than a scarf, that might have a pattern, or I may need to mark the stitches in some way. I'm really happy how they have turned out, and intend to look for some larger rings to make some for thicker gauge needles.
The last thing there is a rucksack and purse that I have made for Blue. I am still making the messenger bag. [There was enough fabric for all three, and I think I still have some spare.] Putting the eyelets through the top stumped me at first as they just didn't want to be put in, then they just did. I did have to pre-punch the holes though, as they went in through at least 2, maybe 3 layers of good quality denim.
