Snow! PLUS a photo gallery of FOs

I can't believe it! It's finally here! Snow! Can you tell I'm excited? At about 3:00 pm the clouds rolled in from the north. It started with popcorn snow, and now it's a full-blown snow storm outside! Whoopee! I'm sure it won't last long, but I will enjoy it as much as I can while it's here. :)

I also have some promised pics of finished projects:

First, I have the Harvey Kimono from Louisa Harding's Natural Knits for Babies and Moms. I followed the pattern exactly except that I used Knit Picks DK merino in taupe.

Next I have another pattern from Natural Knits: the Oz Vest. I used Knit Picks DK merino as well, but in fern. This one is still a little big for Matthew, so it will be perfect around Christmas.

Here is a VERY handsome young man modeling a sweater (Debbie Bliss pattern) with matching booties (Zoe Mellor pattern) that were started way before he was even born (but the sweater was just competed!) I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino for both, and they are so soft!

I have also made a couple of "Lucy Bags" from my own pattern (sorry, these are a little blurry). I haven't seen the Lucy Bag pattern, so I'm not sure how the patterns are different, but what I can see by looking at the bags are that mine seem to be a little more like totes.

Last, but certainly not least, is the "Pity Hat for Pat." :)

Whew, I sure have been a knitting fool!

We had snow here in Idaho yesterday too. Your Lucy bags look quite a bit like the original pattern, very nice. I've made 4 or so, you can see them on my Flickr account if you are interested, more are posted there than on my blog, just do a search in my photos for "Lucy"

my oh my.... you are a knitting fool.... beautiful finished work!
As far as longies go.... there are a lot of good yarns to use my #1 favorite is plymouth outback, then peace fleece (wash it, condition it, and lanolize it in the skein before you wind it off), Cascade 220 works but doesn't make a really thick barrier, and avoid single ply yarns because they pill a lot... is that clear as mud ? :)
