Up to much...

Well, I've had computer issues...and camera issues...and iTunes issues....hmmmm...could it be because of the highly suspect firmware update that I installed just like I was told...being a good computer owner and always keeping my updates up to date....yes...I'm blaming the update.....

...but ...at least I've got some knitting done....not much on baby niece's sweater.....it's the most fun....but...I'm trying to force myself to finish other things...so here it sits...
I made some felted slippers...as a test for possible Christmas presents for people...I definitely need to make the larger size....but I think I like the pattern....couldn't be simpler....just knit a big rectangle...then sew up the heel, gather the toe...and sew a bit up for the top of the foot...throw it in the washer and felt away......
I just finished the first sleeve of my grey sweater today...and picked up the stitches for the second sleeve...I'm soooooo excited! If I didn't have to be out of the house every single night this week....I could get it done...but..I DO have to be out .....so....the sweater will wait ...perhaps next weekend I will get more done......
It's funny...I'll finally be finished the grey sweater I've been dying for....and all the new clothes I bought (because I was starting to look like I was falling apart at work) are BROWN!!!! LOL, Oh well, it will still go with jeans! And it seems like it's going to fit me perfectly...so I'm quite pleased.
Finally! I've got a gift for my good friends baby...that was born 2 months ago! I mailed it off yesterday....hope she likes it.....just a simple rag quilt...but I thought it was cute with the monkey fabrics...and the flannel is nice and soft...
These pictures are pre-wash, so it doesn't look as frayed. I washed it twice before I sent it....and it's fraying nicely.
I still can't believe I found three monkey fabrics! I love them!
