The elves were right and my wonderful sons gave me a Canon Powershot A540 for Christmas (I hinted big time) So now I have some pictures to show and some FO's. I have also switched to the new Blogger, so hopefully all will go well.
This is a picture of what I got at Rhinebeck (I know, I know). A lot of it has already been put to good use, as you will soon see. I bought the dyed fleece to do some needle felting, the white to do some koolaid dying with my students, the blue yarn for some sweaters and the white laceweight to the left for a shawl. And the Brittanny DPs just because..

This rather dark photo (Old camera) is Branching Out from Knitty in Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool - natural color. I made it for my friend Carol's birthday. It's really an easy pattern and I think it looks terrific.

Three wash cloths (forget where I got the pattern) in Peaches and Cream cotton. Tied up with raffia and a nice bar of soap these were great little teacher gifts.
This is a photo of the scarf I made for Tony, Kat's fiance. The pattern was from Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson and called the Child's Rainbow Scarf. I used Katia Mexico in the grey colorway. I loved working with this yarn and went right back and bought some for a scarf for me (picture to come soon) In the mistake rib stitch, it was so soft and squooshy.

Two bracelets, one for Kat and one for Annet. The felted balls were so much fun and so easy! I made a bunch of them.

Cat toys for Pantera and Paco, Kat's babies. These were felted over plastic cat toys from Petco with a bell inside. So cool!
And finally, Fetching also a Knitty pattern. A friend who is a musician asked me to make her a pair of mitts to keep her hands warm in her very cold office. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. It's wonderfully soft. I made the first pair in a yummy chocolate brown and she was very happy. This pair (only one done so far) is a beautiful seafoam color which didn't photograph true. They really work up quickly and are a great gift.
And I got my Mommymobile back! A very skilled body shop made it as good as new (Actually better) So I am happy. And I have gotten rid of the I-haven't-posted-in-a-long-time guilt.
It's all good.
