Warm Hands Ilene

Started October 1
Finished October 5
Size 4mm and 5.5mm needles.
(Either 5.5 or 6 -- needle wasn't in the package, and
I couldn't find my doo-hickey to measure it.)
4 skeins Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in sage green

I started it at Knit Nite, so I accidentally made the bottom garter stitch instead of stockinette. Too much gabbing on my part. I switched to 4mm when I got to the ribbing and handle. Lots of room in this, that's for sure. The "full" shots have four large towels stuffed inside. I can see making more of these, they'd make good gifts.

I also have some more FOs. These are for Warm Hands Innu Knits. (Ravelry link here.)

Started September 17
Finished October 6
Briggs & Little Atlantic 3 ply
violet, scarlet, peacock, and paddy green

The red and green striped is kinda Christmasy. I'd like to send my package off by Halloween, and I'd like to try and get a couple of pairs of mittens to go as well.

Just a short post for now. It's Fire Prevention Week, and tonight are the fire truck rides. (I started this post earlier today, now it's 6pm.) Never fails, it's always quite chilly the night of the rides. The hoodlums are ready to go. The Littlest One won a coloring contest in his class, so he got a bunch of stuff I didn't have time to look at yet, and he also won a coupon for a free pop and bag of chips at the kiddie dance tonight. Needless to say that I need cash to buy the same for the Oldest One.

Happy knitting!

Your bag came out really well and I agree that it would make a nice gift. I see more of those in your future.
Have fun at the Fire Prevention do. We always loved those when we were kids!
