Here are some pictures of the result:
Bag with bottom seam sewn
I don't have the pictures with me from the piece after blocking. But I'll post one soon.

I bought the Manos cotton yarn and the pattern. It will be the first garment that I attempt. I'm a little nervous, especially because I don't sew. But my LYS is wonderful, and they assured me that they would help me with the seaming and picking up stiches for the collar. I am really excited about this one! I hope it comes out half as cute when I make it. My daughter's will be the practice piece... then I am going to make a second one for my best friend's daughter... that one has to be GOOD! :-)

Well, we woke up to quite a surprise this morning! Our shih tzu, Barkli, apparently got bored in the middle of the night. He rectified that by going to town on my stash. I have a box that I keep all of my yarn in. Or should I say KEPT? Barkli dug out at least half of it, and had a hay day with it. We woke up to find yarn stretched from one end of the house to the other, both upstairs and downstairs. Including ON the stairs. There were literally 3 skeins of yarn spread up the stairs. I didn't have time to try to pick it all up before I left for work, so that will be my fun for the evening. I am hoping that the majority of the yarn is slavageable. It doesn't look like he did any real damage to it... just had a ball (no pun intended) unwinding it all and dragging it about. And I thought it would be the CAT who tried to play with the yarn. Shows you what I know!

So, if anyone has suggestions for a pattern or something NON-BLANKET for a newbie knitter, I would love to hear them.
Here are a couple of pictures of my godson's blanket, in progress: (it's hard to tell what it really looks like, huh?)

I just looked down at my calendar. It is March 2. I am trying to figure out how we are already into the 3rd month of 2007. Unbelievable. I sure don't have the FO's to show for that time! I have almost finished the second square of my square of the month afghan. I hope to get that all done this weekend, as the yarn and pattern for square 3 will be ready for pick up in a week or so!
My godson Henry was born very prematurely. He has been in the hospital for a couple of months. I am STILL working on his blanket, but the good news is that he went home yesterday!!! To say I am ashamed that the blanket isn't done is an understatement. He and his family live in Canada. I'll be going to visit sometime in April or May for the baptism, and my plan is to take the blanket and give it to him in person then. The pressure is on! :-)
It is warming up here in Houston. I'm getting spring fever. Hopefully I will still get some knitting done, even though I want to be outside romping with the kids in the sunshine all day long!!!
