Work is slow today, so I brought in my crocheting stuff and hope to finish the bag today.

The B4 bag is finished! The fabric isn't as firm as I would have liked, which could either be due to the acrylic or the fact that I felted it by hand, er, foot in the bathtub. I am happy with the way it turned out, though. I'm planning on making another one with Patons Merino, which I've heard felts up fast. They are a lot of fun to make, so I don't know if I can stop with just two!
I decided that I need to finish all of my projects on the needles (and hook) before I can cast on anymore projects, including the second B4 bag. That would be my Touch Me scarf, the crochet purse, the crochet shawl and Bobblicious from Knitty, as well as finishing and putting the zipper on my round bag. It's just so much more fun to start projects than to finish them!

I finished knitting the B4 bag last night and felted it. Here's a pre-felting picture. It should be dry tonight, so hopefully I'll have time to sew the buttons on.
I splurged on beads at http://www.shipwreckbeads.com this morning. I have lots of projects in mind for them!

Here is most of a completed circle bag that just needs to be finished and a zipper sewn in. I only like making things, finishing them is what bogs me down.
Since it's gotten so hot, some of my other projects have been stalled. So I'm working on a lacy crochet shawl instead. It's awfully cold in the office, so this will be just the thing - dressy enough for the office, but not too warm if I forget and wear it outside in the 95 degree heat.
