Weekend Getaway Satchel {front done} and 2 furry floozies

I have finished the intarsia work on the front of the Weekend Getaway Satchel. I still have to knit up about 10", and then the embroidery work can begin. My back is done, but I'm still working on the gussets, and dreading the work on the 30 foot long red handles. More information about this pattern can be found at: http://weekendgetawaysatchel.blogspot.com/ and the materials can be ordered here:
I'm also posting 2 more furry floozies pics. China is the mostly white, black spotted cat; and Meteor is the mostly black cat!

Thanksgiving 2006

Christopher says "Thanksgiving is like at ride a Disney World"...."four hours of waiting" (prep time), and "four minutes of riding" (eating). I'll agree, except he forgot about the four hours of clean-up at the end!

Orange Mittens

I found a really simple pattern on the web to make 2 needle mittens. The pattern can be found here http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/the-mitts.html

Knit NY and Mittens

Last week I went into Manhattan and visited Knit NY cafe and knitting shop. It's a cool shop on 14th Street, corner of 2nd Avenue. I purchased some yarn and supplies and sat and knitted up the green camoflauge mitten. Hope to make the second one soon, and then I will felt them. Here's two photos from the shop, and a photo of the one mitten.
