State Fair Knit-along

Well, I guess I mentioned doing the State Fair Knit-along in my last post. It's getting closer to the time to turn my stuff in and I'm not quite done with them. I have some ends to weave in on my Blackberry, and the One Skein Wonder. I'm not too happy with the baby hat, so I might buy new yarn and re-knit it. Katja is ready too go. My felted bag needs some more felting and some decorating. I was thinking of putting some yo-yo's on it.

Needless to say, I'm going to be crafting all day today. However, I might get distracted by the baby sweater I'm knitting out of Last Minute Knitted Gifts cuz it's coming along nice and fast (0-6 month size). It's out of Plymouth yarn's Fantasy Naturale 100% cotton mercerized. I'm loving it. I used it for my niece's Katja and it turn out nice. I love how this yarn is so soft once knit... And it's relatively cheap, compaired to some of the other cotton's I've come across in various LYS.

Oh, and I have pictures!
