I had a finishing of projects day yesterday. I have a dreadful habit of nearly finishing projects. so I was determined.

first of all I wanted to finish this bag

I was alright apart from the lining. I hadn't a clue what I was doing but I got there in the end

what's that in there? it's not another project is it?

I then finished a tiny little baby jumper for my sister's baby that's due in june

which I had already made socks to match (two needle socks from a debbie bliss book- really easy!!)

and then I finished my prototype for a phone sock for the mothers day secrets room at my son's school.

so what now? well what was that in the bag. well my friend and I found this fabulous ball of wool. in my local wool shop.

it's gorgeous, almost a shame to use as it's like a cushion. that's a 200g ball! (for £3.50!!!)
here's a close up

and here's what it knits up like

and of course while I was at the wool shop that wasn't all I got.

The pink one is the phone sock yarn, and the denimy one is to make something else for my sister's baby.
here's a close up of those ones too

you can wake up now!!! I've finished the post!! boy that was a long one!!
