Another Tote Bag

Finished the striped tote bag. Didn't come out very good. Oh well, it used up yarn that was not good for anything else. Also working on the Sock Monkey kitty bed. Just about done except for felting. I have been fighting the urge to buy yarn. The local yarn store is having a 50% off sale!. That's hard to resist. But, I'm trying.

Just because it's been really, really hot and I haven't posted in a while, you didn't think I wasn't knitting? Silly. Of course I have been knitting.
A finished object - One brown afghan/lap blanket.
This did not take very long to do. As you can see, it looks the same on both sides. And how did I decide to make this? Well, the box lid holding my acrylic yarn wouldn't close, so out the yarn came. Just enough for a small blanket. The other project in the picture is a striped tote that I started a while back. Like the blue felted one from the Oneskein book that I did in July.. I'm using up odds and ends of wool.

The kitty bed (called sock monkey kitty bed) and catnip toys have been gifted. They were very well received. Sister decided to put in the catnip herself.

Mice Bowl You Have There

Supposed to be a kitty bed. Looks more like a bowl. Maybe I should have made fish catnip toys. A sturdy cat bed was requested, so I turned it inside out and folded over the top. The yarn was a ragg wool with 30% nylon, it took longer to felt, but turned out fine. I have enough yarn left over for another one. Still haven't got the catnip.
