a few new knits

I made another French Market Bag/basket from for Klose Knit. I used Malabrigo chunky instead of aran weight yarn and size 13 needles. It turned out a lot bigger than expected, but now it can hold more things.

Before Felting

After Felting

I used some felted tweed I had to knit a patch for my jeans. I have plans for a felted tweed sweater, but I probably won't get to that until next Fall.

I finished a pair of socks for my friend Mindi using Universal Yarn's Deluxe Worsted LP 100% wool

a few random knits

I'm working on a few big projects at the same time (felted basket, cotton pants, a couple socks) so I don't have as many new knits to show, but I finished two twisted rib watch caps

Here's one I made with Jamieson's Shetland wool chunky.
online pattern:

I love Mr. Bean episodes and movies so I made this teddy bear from a random online pattern for a Mr. Bean teddy bear!
I used Rowan Pure Wool dk and Elizabeth Lavold's oh so soft Classic AL for the hands

Here are some fingerless gloves I did last Fall and finally got around to wearing them. They're not my favorite, but they are pretty functional.
The pattern calls for a flap to go over the mittens, but I'm not crazy enough about the yarn to knit anymore on these gloves.
I used Filatura di Crosa 127 Print
