Just Relaxing Today For A Change

I finally got some personal issues taken care of that were really stressing me out. I took today to relax and enjoy myself. I got pretty much caught up on my emails and groups and actually got some knitting time in...YAY!!

I started this bag a few days ago and I'm on the last part of the top...almost finished. I think I like this one even better than the Everlasting Bagstopper. I had some issues with the top so I will most likely be making a few changes on the next one. It has only taken 2 small balls of cotton to do this bag...I really thought it would take more. This one is Mary's Summer Bag from Knit Picks . It's also a pretty quick knit once you get the bottom done and start on the sides.
Not sure yet how I'll modify the top but I'll work it out. I used Sugar & Cream in Sea Mist and a matching blue *not sure of the name*.

This little guy I knit today. This is Bubbles With Fins and he's a design by Susan Mrenna. His fins are an addition done by Alli. I think these two awesome designers made a great team with this little fella. He's cute with or without fins. He was knitted with Sugar & Cream in Beach Ball Blue. I'm going to make some for my kids to use as coasters....that's my plan, doesn't mean they'll ever actually use them. ;p

Cat is having a contest. She needs some help/suggestions/advice on getting organized. Hop over and check it out and see if you have any ideas that might help her out. Tell her I sent ya. Knowing Cat...the prize will be awesome...she's good like that!

Okay, I know you don't want to hear this, but.... With all these beach bags you are making right now I think I will point out that crocheted bags would really work up much more quickly. I know you can do it!

Hi Mel, and welcome again, my Sweet Friend! As the instigator of Bubbles-Mania, I love seeing your creation. Looks great, and the colors are fantastic, reminiscent of water and "life in the deep"!
Hope all is well with you and yours, Mel.
Love, Malgosia
