Playing ketchup ;)

Hi everyone. I guess it's time for me to play catch up with all the projects I've been talking about, working on and unable to post properly. I temporarly solved my computer problem by hooking up a monitor to the laptop, which seem to be working fine. Now I got some pictures to show you:

This is what the nice mail lady brought me last week. It's a box from Rachel. She hear me crying about how I never had the pleasure of knitting with handspun and came to the rescue. She sent me some of her very own handspun yarn to play with and this is what I finished with one of the balls of yarn that is unfortunately missing from the picture:

Isn't it cute? I just had to give this stuff a try and I absolutely love the way the colors change. Great job spinning this up, Rachel.

Next up is a ragquilt I threw together in a day for the new little baby girl of a soldier in our unit to accompany the baby booties. Here is a little work in progress photo gallery (I guess) of the different stages of the quilt. Really simple and really fast too = instant gratification. I love projects like these:

Then, like that wasn't enough yet, I knitted up this little hottie in a day with my trusty size 8 mm sparkly needles. Maybe that's what made my fingers fly? I think it's more like the size of the needles :)

After all of that I needed some time out and I made a couple of the mini socks from my left over sock yarn stash and gave some to my deserving friends and I knitted a couple more rows on the infamous kimono shawl. It's still not finished, but after a couple more visits to the dentist's office with my kids I should be done with it soon ;).

Gotta run, I hope that will keep you reading for a while. At least I put enough pictures in there to keep you entertained. I know how boring all my babling can be :) Later

That little coin purse is adorable! What a great idea for using up little bits of yarn. I bet my daughter and nieces would love those.

The quilt is great, too. The people around you are extremely lucky to receive handmade gifts so often. You're awesome!

My goodness, you have been one busy lady. I love all that handspun. Yum! And the baby quilt is so adorable. Good for you for the support of our military. Hubby is former Air Force, so I sure know what it's like to be a military family. Oh, the tales I could tell. Happy knitting, Angelika!
