Lots of WIP's

Hi everybody...just wanted to show you all what's on my needles. Of course you all know how I am....lots of WIP's at one time, I'm sure I'm not the only one out there Right?! ;)

Dream in Color Smooshy: Happy Forest
Pattern: Twisted Flower by Cookie APagewood Farm Chugiak Sock yarn: Meadow
Embossed Leaves from Favorite Socks

Sundara Yarn: Grape over Grey Violet

Pattern: Roza's socks by Grumerina

Vesper Sock Yarn: Astro
Pattern: My own sock recipe 64sts with Picot cuff on size 1 needles

I cast on for this sock ages ago, before Cierra was born. It was supposed to be my "mindless knit" in the hospital. Needless to say it has been sitting on the needles for awhile now and I finally finished it the other day. Now to cast on for its mate. Wonder how long it will take me to finish that one ;)

Dream in Color Classy: Deep Sea Flower
Pattern: Wicked by Sarah and Rachel for Zephyr Style

This is my contribution to the Dream In Color KAL for the Loopy Ewe. So far so good. I love this yarn and the color.
Also some stash enhancement. DkKnits Technicolor dream toes in Hawaiian Hibiscus

Some fabric stash enhancement. My mom saw the Punky Pouch that I made for my sister and wants one to. She said "Hey that looks like it would be a perfect makeup bag" So I went out and bought more supplies.

I also figured that I could pick up a couple of Fat Quarters and make some coasters for her, my sister and myself of course. The pattern is from the "Last Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts"book.After I finished some of these I decided that I should start my moms bag but realized that I was tired of not having a safe place to put my pins while I sew. I had been putting them on the table. This pattern is also in the "Last Minute Patchwork+Quilted Gifts"The only thing I did was use 4 different peices of fabric instead of 8 and I added a button, just cause I had one laying around in my sewing kit that would match. The fabric is part of a Jolly Pack that I had bought before Cierra was born from the Fat Quarter shop. The pack came with 35 different 5" blocks that I had planned on using to make a small quilt for Cierra for Valentine's day. Well that never happened so I use them for this. I have plenty leftover. Maybe I will make more Pincushions. :)Well that's all for now. Happy Knitting, Sewing or Crafting in general. :)
