Knit Snake

I knit this snake for my grandson. I had knit him a giraffe and an elephant too, but when he saw the picture of the snake, he wanted a snake too. So it's finally done. See giraffe here and elephant here.

I made another large selvage bag. I added some yellow rick rack at the top. This is side "A".

Side "B".

Zippered Purse/Bag

I made this bag because I wanted a zippered purse. It's essentially an oversized makeup-style bag that I added a strap to. I quilted the fabric first myself and then made the bag. I added a swivel hook to clip my car keys to also.

Christmas tree skirt I made with Dresden Plate wedges. My daughter asked me to make a small tree skirt and I made this for her.

Poppies in a Vase Quilt

Close-up of butterfly button
I finally finished this quilt. I had made the top over a year ago and just hadn't taken the time to quilt it. So finally I decided to quilt it. I cut the edges in a wavy shape and used bias binding to bind the quilt. It's done and came out nice and is hanging up now.

Crocheted Washcloths

I am trying to teach myself to crochet. While I have crocheted the basic stitches before, I never made anything with crochet before. This is a cotton washcloth using 4  different crochet stitches that I made. I find knitting to be easier, but then I have been knitting for years.

I had enough leftover cotton yarn to make a smaller washcloth all in single crochet.

Hand Knit Socks

I knit these socks with Knit Picks Essential sock yarn. It self patterns as you knit.

The tiniest sock ever! This one was rather tricky to knit around the toe, just because it was so small.  It was knit with 000 size needles.  I was going to make 2 socks and make them into earrings, but for now I only made this one.

Simple Bag/Purse

Simple bag I made. It's reversible if I want to turn it inside out, but I like the denim for the exterior.

Cotton Knit Market Bag

I knit this bag with cotton yarn. I had some misc. yarn and I was starting to run short of the blue yarn, so I switched to the pink in the middle of the bag. I saved some blue to finish the striped area above the pink, but then ran out of the blue completely and this time I used the pale yellow for the rest of handles. That should have been blue too. Oh well, it still will be very useful and I used up some of my yarn too.

I put some plastic bags inside to take this photo so it would show what it looks like when full.
