A Few Last Year Knitting Projects and My New Projects this weekend

 Hi there 

Hi there friends...Had a very busy and fun week. Went to a knitting group/class, Cirque Du Soleil Ovo (FANTASTIC!!!) with my husband and my kids and had our monthly knitnite group in my house.
I'm now just relaxing a bit in my couch and crocheting a bit a couple new patterns I just started this weekend. But first I have been wanting to post a few pictures of some of the things I have been knitting  since last year. I probably have done 10 times the number of projects I'm posting, but I didn't always remember to take pictures and after they are gone to their homes (I give most everything I make :)) then I cannot really take pictures anymore. 
Hope you enjoy seeing some of my projects as much as I enjoyed making them!

Now I will show you what I have been up to this weekend :

First I'll show you my bag... Yay!!! I did finish my 
Bohemian Bag...
I'm so happy with the final result. Love the leather handle (although I had a really hard time to figure it out how to put the snaps, but I did it!)
I'm so excited to wear it tomorrow :) Pure Hapiness. (thanks again Lucy from Attic24 for the great inspiration) 

Because my bag was ready I just started having withdraw feelings...
I had to start a new project so I could use all of those great colors I had in my basket... voila...
I started a cute scarf with the linen stitch which is a very simple pattern... really just single crochet and a chain and repeat to the end (you need to start with even number of stitches).
I'm soooooo happy with the combination of colors!
Just pure bliss!
It's been raining the whole day here and it's so nice for my eyes  to have a bit of color to cheer me up.

And then last but not least...
My Mom's blanket.

I have tried several different patterns for this great yarn (Cascade Eco+) I got over a year ago.
I made a blanket for my Dad right before he passed away (I was able to give it to him, but he passed away a month after) and for some reason I just cannot get this blanket going ....:(
I do think this one is a go now... I have told my mom I'm working on it for a whole year.
I do love this pattern now and I'm going to make one whole bigger square the size of the square made out of 4 squares.
I think it wil turn out great and I'll be praying for my mom's health as I make it for her...
Cannot wait to see the final result, but since I just started (again) I know I have a long way to go... but it is a happy decision :)

I had a great relaxing weekend and hope you had one too!
Thanks for visiting me here and have a great week :)
