Here are a few FO's. Unfortunately I gave the ponchette away today (and my mom, in classic mom fashion, said WHAT IS THIS THING?!!! - although I think once she tried it on, she liked it)

I think I have enough of the Noro left from the sweater to do a Sophie. I have another ponchette for my step mom in the making - I will be sure to post it, they are darling and so easy.....

The bag is beautiful and it looks like it was fun to make!

I love the colors in the sweater! It looks so warm and snuggly! And the dog is a cutie! I love Labs! I want a chocolate one soooo bad!

Those colours have me drooling here... nearly enough to run over to Ram's and spend the $ I've been saving for DH's b-day pressie {b-day and 6th anniversary in 2 weeks!}.

Fab sweater - what pattern did you use?

I used that colour of Noro for the York Zip up Ribbed cardi from Noro Knits - it is so comfy and snuggly and I absolutely love it. I've worn it a lot because although we've had a few baking hot days (up to 24C!) here in the UK it's turned really chilly again over the last few days! Typical - I think we might have had our quota of sunshine for the year already!

So - don't delay in getting it made up - you'll be really glad you did! ;)

I did McKee from the Noro Knits book:

http://www.laughinghens.com/knitting-pattern-page.asp?patternpageid=2084

I did it alot shorter (nobody who has had two children and weighs over 120 lbs should wear it that long and fitted) and did a mock turtle instead of a turtle.

Also, I did the neck circular rather than straight - I didnt want a seam on my neck.

VERY easy first sweater. I learned a ton. One of the things I learned, unfortunately, is how much I like Addi needles.
