A "Finished Objects Extravaganza"!

Well, what do you think?! I've been busy! Starting at the top photo, two ballband dishcloths from the Mason Dixon Knitting book. Which I am very addicted to at the moment! The yarn is Sugar N Cream. I really love the color combination on this one and they were great fun to knit up. The other two dishcloths are multi colored Peaches N Cream done in the "Granny's Favorite" pattern. The solid yellow one was a lot of fun too, I can't remember the name of the pattern, but it was from a dishcloth book I purchased at AC Moore. The bottom picture is another felted bag. This one is really "funky" for my niece, Charity. I think she will really like it. It is shaped sort of like a lunch bag. The funky yarn is very long, hard to tell in the pic. but it is very cool. She loves cats so I added a cat button I purchased at a LYS. Currently, I am working on a Nine patch dish cloth, found at the Mason Dixon KAL. I posted my first post on that blog today. I have to say I am very addicted to the Mason Dixon blogs and book! Speaking of book, Maggie Sefton has her third book out. Title is A Deadly Yarn. I called my LBS today and they should have it in probably tomorrow. I love her two previous ones and am looking forward to reading the next one. I know Monica Ferris has a new book out also, Sins and Needles, I will get that one eventually, but it is in hard back only right now. I also read some of the reviews on that one and was surprised to read that several of her regular characters aren't in this time. I would like to read it, but may wait for the paperback version if I can. Guess that's it for now! Off to knit more, I am loving the nine patch so far and will post a pic when it's done!
