Here are a few things I've finished up lately:

The ubiquitous Fetching from Knitty; also, I started on a Triple Cable Muffler from One Skein to go with it. Both are worked in Reynold's Oddysey.

Next is a crochet bookmark I made for my daughter's teacher for Teacher Appreciation week. It accompanied a new copy of Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh to replace the falling-apart one her teacher had.


I also made a row counter bracelet with freshwater pearls, rose quartz, and a pewter charm. It can count to 109; the white pearls represent 10's and the mauve pearls represent 1's.

There are some other pictures and details on my blog (http://knit-errant.blogspot.com), along with some new beading/jewelry FO's too.

Anyhoo, thanks for looking! :muah:

Just beautiful, KE, as usual your craftsmanship is evident in every item! :cheering:

BTW, weirdly enough I was just looking at buying that book - it was one of my very favorites growing up.
