Bubble Bag

After the Christening Gown was complete, I was a happy knitter.

I felt energized, so I looked for a new pattern to make. I decided to make the "Bubble Bag" I found online for one of my piano students. Her favorite colors are green and blue.

I gathered together everything I would need for the bag

The knitting went very fast!

After it was felted, it looked so cute!

Next, I decided to make a scarf for the Red Scarf Project, and it didn't take long at all.

By this time, I had learned to spin yarn, so I wanted to make something with the wool I had spun. I chose to make a pillow. The yarn was overspun, so the knitting twisted. I ended up with an assymetrical pillow! But, it didn't look too bad.

I had finally finished the teal shawl:

It was October of 2006 by now, and my husband and I were planning on going away for our 5th wedding anniversary. We decided to stay in a cabin in the mountains, so I quickly knit some warm hats for us to wear. Here's one of them.

I also made some warm slipper socks for my hubby.

When we got back from our trip, my mother asked if I could make a hat and scarf set for one of her coworkers. I went ahead and started the scarf, because I knew that would be the easy part. I used Moda Dea Dream yarn in Winter White.

I found a beret pattern at the yarn shop, and got started.

It looked so soft and dreamy when it was finished!

I really liked the set when it was done.

But, my mother said to add fringe.

(I hate fringe...but that's the breaks.)

Next, I made a Christmas stocking for my cousin's yarn shop.

Then, I made some slipper socks for my Grandma for Christmas.

I decided to not knit anything else for Christmas 2006. I wanted to relax and enjoy the holiday, and took a break from knitting. It was nice! :)
