I finished two projects--go me!

I finished two projects last evening. Yeah me! I completed the rest of the finishing on my two felted fish:

Aren't they so cute! I stitched on eyes and then stuffed them with polyfill. They will make perfect little gifts for my friends two boys. The fish pattern is from the Knitter's Stash and is made of nature spun Brown Sheep yarn. I bought a bunch of Brown Sheep yarn in bright colors from an ebayer, and I have been working my way through the stash. There is lots more to felt in the drawer!

My daughter was helping stuff the fish, but wanted her own project. Here's her creation:

She wanted to stuff Santa--This kid is ready for Christmas!

My booga bag was finally dry, so I put it together:

This bag is from the free Booga Bag Pattern from Black Sheep Bags. The yarn is Noro Kuryeon 102. This is a super fast pattern and one that will be a great Christmas gift for my friend who loves Noro yarns. I have some Kuryeon in the stash for a black variegated Booga Bag for myself. Maybe soon?

So, Christmas gifts are soooo close to being finished--just that crochet border on my Mom's gift.

It is time for my birthday gift-- my Sursa shawl:

I have the yarn, so I decided now was the time. Here's the very beginnings of the shawl:

The pattern is from Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton's second book (the one that has Klaralund). Once again I love the designer's color choices, so I am using the same: Noro Silk Garden No. 87 and Cash Iroha No. 77. Since Texas weather went from 78 yesterday morning to 48 in the evening, this could indeed come in handy!
