A Lump of Coal

I made this bag from the Interweave Knits mag. It's the Dumpling Bag by Sharon Dreyfuss. This is a great quick knit for a gift. I used Lamb's Pride Burly Spun in Charcoal.

I found some shell rings at a local crafts store. I think they look pretty good.

I have made these mittens from Elizabeth Zimmerman's book, Knitting Around. They are the Mitered Mittens. I used a garter stitch bottom edge instead of the i-cord edging. The only problem is one has no blue in it at all so it is a little boring. I have enough Noro Kueryon left over to make another mitten so I think I will . I'll have a 3 mitten set in case one gets lost. Then the only thing left is the thumbs. The pattern calls for an after thought thumb so I need to get up the nerve to cut into these to make that.
On the home front, we are planning to go to Florida soon to visit Walt Disney World. The kids are really excited of course, I am going to be excited once I get on the plane:) I have a bazillion things to plan and pack for that so I better get going.
