Has it really been almost 3 months since my last post?! Oops! Well rather than make some lame excuses I'll just share some finished projects.

This hat was a birthday gift for my sister. Pattern is the Star Crossed Slouchy Beret (Ravelry link). The picture isn't the best but it's the best I could manage using a crappy bathroom mirror.

This bag is intended for one of the ladies in my knitting group. She mentioned that she liked all the project bags that everyone had so I told her I could whip one up for her. It measure 11"x 14" is lined and has a zipper at the top. I also made the bottom a little wider so it can accommodate skeins of yarn a little easier.

This fabric has been laying in my stash just waiting for the perfect project. I seem to have a fair amount of unfinished knitting projects laying around and not nearly enough time to finish them. So this baby should at least help keep everything together.

Next up, more bags for my shop. I know, I know. I still haven't opened my shop. I've been a little insecure about the process so I've decided to do a trial run. My mom and sister participated in a craft fair last year and this year it just so happens to fall in the two week period that I will be back in Iowa before our move to Florida. So I'm going to go in on a booth with them and "test" the market to see which bags sell the best.

This is my favorite bag so far. I absolutely love this print. Anytime I find a yard or two on Etsy I grab it. I was so nervous actually cutting into it the first time. The pattern can be found here.

I love this blue print too. It's probably a good thing that I don't have much use for a small purse these days (with diapers, sippy cups, and all that comes with a little one) otherwise this little guy would be mine! Pattern here.

Last but not least is this beauty. I originally bought this fabric to use as a Christmas gift but ended up using something else. Boy am I glad I did because I just love the way this bag turned out. Same pattern as above.

Ok that wraps up the FINISHED items. I'm working on finishing up all my "in progress" items before the big move so hopefully I'll have more FOs to share soon. Thanks for stopping by.
