I Couldn't Resist!

I couldn't resist! After I made the kitty, I saw this pattern for a dog. And I just happened to see the yarn in a store I was visiting, in all the right colors. I had to buy it. Really, I did! Then, with 15 rows to go, I ran out of yarn. So, I ordered one more skein. And if I was ordering one skein...

I might as well get enough to make the teddy bear.

Believe it or not, I'm stopping while I'm ahead. I'm on a stuffed animal hiatus. Instead, I'm spinning and knitting from my stash.

For example, this little bag is from leftovers I had originally used to crochet over the straps of flip-flops. I am SO proud of it! This is the first time I've made anything asymmetric without breaking into hives. And, I did it without a pattern, too!!! The bag is the perfect size to carry the lace scarf I'm knitting. (And from this angle, it hides my naked loom. Shhhh! Don't tell!)
