Knitting as fast as I can!

Here are the last two pairs of pocketbook slippers that I finished, before I started the knitted ripple baby blanket that I need to finish before December 8th. (Not a very good photo, but I hope to get a better once when I'm finished. I don't know why, but I always have trouble photographing blankets.)
I think I've made very good progress so far. Yesterday I knit right through my youngest son's first basketball game of the season and got quite a bit accomplished. Good thing he doesn't object to me knitting at his games :) I really don't think it will be a problem getting this completed on time. Once done then I have to get cracking and get going on my Christmas knitting!

Just in case you were afraid to knit up one of my plastic shopping bags because you didn't have enough bags, there is a solution. Check out this beautiful plastic shopping bag knitted with my pattern by Melissa.
Melissa got tired of waiting to save up enough Target bags to make one of my big knitted bags and improvised by using "Ruffies Color Scents" bags. She said, "they come on a roll and it only takes a fraction of a roll for the bag." They come is several colors and they are scented as well. Oh, the possibilities! I'm going to check out these bags when I shop this week. Very interesting. Bags made from new colored scented bags would make great gifts :)

Off and running because there is just too much to do. Hope you all have a good week and are very happily knitting away :)

    What a neat idea with the trash bags and it looks so pretty in the lavender color.

  2. The baby blanket is just darling. I might have to make one whether I get another grandbaby soon or not. :)
    I love the lavender shopping bag! Using the Ruffies was brilliant.

    Hope you get all the knitting done soon. :)

  16. I love the striped slippers. I'm knitting them for some teachers, so I'll have to try that on a pair.
    Ingenious, using the Ruffie's bags. I get those at Wal Mart sometimes.

  17. I like that ripple blanket a lot! How clever to use a roll of bags to make one of your shopping bags; I will say that I do like your original version best because it's the most eco-friendly.
