Its done YEA for me!!!!!!!. The bag was from the Creative Knitting mag. I am looking for the issue date. The pattern was solid. I just drug my feet on this one. I did do the handles different. I used Bernat Wool and lined the bag with a floral print. No bells and whistles on the lining. You see I love adding pockets...places to hide things. (I am the velcro queen) In the past I may have went overboard. It went like this...no pockets mom, no little key loops no hidden zippers... nothing, nada ,zippo....just a lining. So note it just has a lining.
I have a charity box going. It is filled with girl stuff. Since I have a boy it was my girl outlet. Fish update I have 13 done 50 more.

I am working on my stuff. I have a fear of posting pictures of any unfinished objects. So no pics of my stack of fish and my baby blanket. You see everytime I post a picture of an unfinished item it gets frogged or looses its charm,starts growing or shrinking. You get the picture.

The baby is due in March. The baby star blanket is Beth's Little star. The sweater is the crocheted sweater pattern from bundles of love.org. The sweater pattern is so adapted with increases under the arms and decreases around the neck not to mention the button band so realize this if you check it out. I added the letter from Hancocks they were on sale for just .25. The hat is once again a pattern I saw in an old Annies cat. I winged it. The "T " is the first letter of the couples last name. So this is the outfit for the new manager for team "T". Now the high tops were from the Annies book. I did go down a needle size to make it for a newborn. All this will go into the wash with snuggles fabric softner. It was made with Red Heart. I found a really good sale. I have yet to put the buttons on the set. The cost under $3.00 to make. I have also made a bonnet and fake maryjanes to go into the baby bag.
I am making the fish blanket. Did you know they even have a yahoo group just for this fishy afghan. I have 2 fish done. It will be an on going project with scraps.
I have the coughing thing so I am hoping it will just put me in a chair knitting fish and not in bed all medicated up with cough meds 24/7 like it usually does.

I am not sure which translation, but in Psalms 139:13 it says I was knit together in my mothers womb. Sooooo this was my fav. hand knit (by God no less). I had a part in knitting a very similar project 33 years ago and by the way its holding up very nicely. Although it pilled a little at 16. ((wink)).
So I have fudged my way into putting a picture of the boy on my projects page. Heres the info: Gus T. is sitting in his gr grandpa's highchair (80) the same highchair I sat in as well as all my children. Heres the wonder: gr grandpa and my son and grandson all share the same given name. 6 generation in all ( I am checking maybe 7). If I had been a boy it would have been my name as well. This child is so sweet and good natured not to mention how beautiful he is . Ok, I am going to stop now.
I have started a baby girl sweater for a couple due in March. I am enjoying the pink, but all I can think about is boy things now ...... wonder why.
