WIP Wednesday

Happy Wednesday all,
I can't believe it's March already (march post coming soon....); but as it's Wednesday I thought I'd get back into Work In Progress - I haven't posted much in the last few weeks (of anything) but this week I am really feeling bloggy so look out for some more posts this week; anyway my WIP this week:

I took all my photos on instagram (Ipod Touch); because I couldn't find my camera charger; first off here is my (rather gorgeous) bag, which holds the bag I am currently knitting (can't believe it's not finished yet); I'm really enjoying making it and I'm hoping to get it finished this week.....
Next up, a few weeks ago I made a knitting needle roll!!! It's a little bit short for some of my needles but my new wooden ones fit just fine; and there are smaller pockets for cable needles etc...
I also bought some yarn; the first time I've bought any online; and I love it - just need to make it into a ball so I can start knitting with it - I'm planning on slippers............
Last month I went to my LYS (well not really local); and picked up a few tools...... the scissors were recommended by the seller so I thought I'd go with them. I also got a yarn holder and a bigger circular needle...........
I'm trying at the moment to get a good balance between everything that is going on in my life; so hopefully I can fit some knitting in really soon!!!!
Little bit of other news about this boy.........
We are pretty sure that Toto is a Maine Coon cat; he is so beautiful and he follows me around like a dog!!!!
I'll be back tomorrow with a wee March post, but for now I better get off!!
love, V xxx

LOVE your needle holder. I keep telling myself I should make one for mine to get things a bit more organized. lol

Love your needle holder! I made one for my circulars last year, and it's so handy!
Great work!

I had a Maine Coon "mutt" cat that was a stray...she was big, she was beautiful and so loving (for a while until we got more pets - she didn't like not being the baby)... when my zoo diminishes some, I'm planning on getting another Maine Coon... I love them!

COOL knitting needle roll! :)

Oh man, that kitty is ADORABLE. I just want to hug him!

I LOVE your needle holder! WOW, it's amazingly awesome. Did you follow a pattern or make it up as you went along?

Let us know how you like those scissors. I'm looking for some good ones for my knitting/crocheting bag. Right now I have huge kitchen scissors and they're just unwieldy.

You need the right tools to get the most out of your crafting time. You have some good ones here. I love how the needle roll came out.

That last picture is just too adorable! Your needle roll is fabulous. I would love to learn how to make one, just as soon as I learn how to work my new sewing machine.

Kitty whiskers! So cute. I was all excited about the fabric you used in your needle roll, and then I was walloped by the kitty pic, and now I've forgotten all about knitting...
