I'm so negligent!

I posted a new listing last week and never blogged about it. I finished a cute little cellphone bag. I thought about all the things I wanted on a cell phone bag - including a wrist strap and a mini-carbiner for clipping it to a belt loop or a keyring.

I snuck the listing in during a slow time and it didn't get many views. You can check it out here:

I'm working on a few brightly colored little cotton hats, inspired by some Mayan crochet I have seen pictures of. I hope to post the first one within the next two days.

New treasury!

My Freeport Pouch is in this absolutely beautiful purple treasury!

It is a Treasury West - so it will expire. I'm trying to get a thumbnail image to post, but Thumbilizer doesn't seem to be working. Hope to post an image later, it really is a beautiful treasury!

Not much here.....

I've been painting a lot this week (see my Etsy ShirleyArt shop http://www.ShirleyArt.etsy.com) so the knitting has been coming along slowly. I have a lot of projects started, even more in the design stage, but nothing new finished for this week. I have a cell phone bag I am finishing up and hope to post early next week. Stay tuned......

It's a Hat!

It's a new cotton slouchy hat!

I have a bunch of ideas in my head for hats, and even though it is warm here, I couldn't resist starting on some.

This is the first one, knit in 100% cotton. The colorwork is inspired by the designs on an early Egyptian stocking now in the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C.
