I finished these little ducky slippers last night. I'm pleased with how they turned out.. so cute..I made them with some recycled 100% cotton yarn on size 6 needles. The pattern was in a larger size than I needed and called for worsted yarn and a larger needles. I'm really not sure of the weight of the yarn.. the label was missing, but it was very soft. Pattern link here .. I think this is discontinued.. not sure though.

Well u can see what has happened to my bag-yarn bag.. I wasn't happy with the shape and ripped it out. It is now rolled back into balls of bag yarn.. sigh...

So of course I started a new bag in a different shape.. It looks a little wompy but I think it will be ok once it's finished with handles. The bag yarn kind of fun to work with anyway. A good way to recycle.. as it takes quite a lot of bags to make enough yarn. (^_^)

I want to thank everyone for your kind and encouraging comments on my patterns. I'm a newbie designer and writing patterns is something that does not come easy for me. Probably the reason it takes me so long to write them and the fact that on some of the items that I designed .. I had used weird methods to attach the knitting to the crochet parts... So.. anyway.. thank you. I'm so excite..!!

Movie report. I watched 300 with my bf.. it was good.. he loved it and watched it twice.. I have 2 more movies from netflix waiting for me to find the time to watch.. Peaceful Warrior and The Last Mimzy..
