Works in Progress

Even though my crafting has taken a back seat lately, I have a few works in progress going.

This is a photo of the main piece of crochet for the Artist's Satchel that I'm making.
I'm using Red Heart yarn in Black, Cherry Red, Light Blue and White.
I'm pleased with the color combination.

This is a photo of the scarf I'm knooking for Medium J.
I'm a bit upset with myself as I didn't get it finished before Christmas. It was to be a gift.

This is a piece of knitting that I started last night. It's going to be a scarf (hopefully).
Santa brought me a set of size 13 knitting needles. Woo Hoo! Just what I'd been wanting!
I have to admit that I'm finally feeling comfortable enough with knitting that I didn't have any trouble casting on the stitches and I remembered how to do the knit and purl stitches without any problems. I even felt a bit of crazy take hold and I decided to add an extra row of purl every now and then to make the "ruffle" effect that you see. It's a random effect and I like how it's turning out so far.
So...that's my current works in progress. I still have the Majestic Afghan waiting in the background as well. But I'll get to it soon enough. Right now, I'm working on the satchel and I can't wait to finish it.
See you soon with more updates!
