Craft fair, here I come!

I completed a few more things for the craft fair.

Another set of baby mittens, hopefully I can get another pair or 2 made before the end of the day. This one is made with leftovers from my Fawkes socks:

A very small felted bag. Perfect for throwing keys and a wallet in for quick errands (do you see those gorgeous handmade socks in this picture! We turned the AC off yesterday and it's already sock wearing weather, a 20 degree drop in one day. . . fantastic!):

My messenger bag is dry and just needs a toggle to close it. It came out much better than I expected. But the yarn alone cost $60 so I'll have to charge more than most people would want to pay for something at a craft fair. We'll see if it sells there, it may just wind up on my etsy shop, which I have to get up and running by the end of the day. Oh, and it's now a laptop bag not a messenger bag. Pre-felting:

Post-felting (with my iPod nano for size comparison):

Owf! so much to do in the next 24 hours! I wanted to make at least one more small felted bag and some more baby mittens. But it's 930 and I haven't even walked the dogs or showered. I need to get a move on!
