Special Order

This is my most recent turtle. I've decided that I really like special order bags. They give me some direction but allow me some space to play around. My friend really loves turtles. Really she does. She has a turtle tatoo on her arm! She also likes red. I combined the two in this turtle and then got nuts with the details.

Here she is relaxin' in the chair:

Here's a detail of the whole "turtle on a turtle on a turtle" thing I did. *Sqweeeee*!! >_< It worked even better than I thought it would.

She has the standard yarn/sock pocket but I think I've perfected the clear pattern/notion pocket by getting the velcro all the way across.

I also worked it so her tail IS the loop for her hook. I don't have any close-ups of her butt for you though. Sorry.

Lovin' this! Wishing my house would pack itself so I could do it all the time!

The Sisters

Here are my 3 latest bugs. I know I said I wouldn't sell them but someone riding in our car saw mine and ordered 3 from my husband for her 3 daughters. Who can say, "No," to such a thing? I'm not on eBay or anything.
Here they are doing their "3 Little Maids from School" impression:
They are, from left to right, Eleanor, Emmy and Evie.

Another Dishcloth

I keep forgetting to post things I've knit. Here are some of the dish/wash cloths I've done lately:

This one I did for Todd from the cotton I was gifted by my Swap Partner. I figured I'd better get started on the Texas memorabelia before the big move. It's pattern was here.
This one is a Tesselating Fish pattern that I put together to make a cloth for my Mother in Law. I realized that I haven't ever knit anything for her before this so she's getting several knitting items this year for her birthday. I'm pretty sure she NEVER reads this particular blog so I'm not too worried about ruining the surprise.
I also made some pinwheel cloths, one of the green for Todd and one of all three fish colors for his mom. MIL will also be getting a surpirse knit gift that I won't post yet.....just in case she wanders over here for some strange reason. ;-)

Dot was a gift for my secret swap partner. I knew she'd know who sent it as soon as she opened it, but she was just too cute to resist.
