Here is the pink felted bag for one of my best friend's girls. I'm making a blue one, too, so they'll have to decide between them who gets what. I didn't want that kind of button, but we didn't have much to chose from in the size I needed. The blue one gets the same button. (There were two on the card.) It took one ball of Patons Classic Wool, and that's the leftover.

One of the boys' dinky cars just to try and give an idea of the finished size. (First picture is closer to the real color.) I'm going to make one for myself, and it will be good if I just want something for my phone, keys, and throw in some money or bank card.

The second Sockapalooza Belle Maman sock. I would have had it finished last night probably, but I had to rip back about half or nearly of the gusset decrease rounds. There was a mis-crossed K2tog, and I couldn't live with it. I was knitting it in the big truck today, and I had missed a K2tog. I should have checked it the second time around but forgot. I must have crossed it like an SSK, and it stood out like a sore thumb to me. It had to be fixed. I have maybe nine or so three-row pattern repeats, then the toe, then they are DONE! (Most likely tonight, hopefully, but I need to try to mow the lawn tonight, too. And I work today.)

I'll leave you with this cute little kitty looking in through my screen door. I never saw him in the yard before today. He was super friendly and really cute. The boys loved him. Two girls came up the road and took him after awhile. There are some new people down the road, and I think he may belong to them.

Happy knitting!

What pattern did you use for the little purse? I have one ball of that yarn, and think that might be just the way to use it up.
Cute kitty.

The kitten just made me laugh. I love cats and their wonderful mystery. Cute bad too.

I think hubby was disappointed that the girls came and took him. (I didn't think he was homeless -- he looked too healthy.) I have three cats already, and they're all getting older and wouldn't take kindly to a youngster, that's for sure! He was a sweetie, though. Almost coulda kept him.

Love the bag! The sock is really going to be gorgeous when it is finished. I too would have gone back to fix the error.
Cute kitty!
