Can't wait::Kicking bag

This was supposed to be a present for a friend's baby boy (due soon) at a get together Monday night. I worked fast and furiously to weave in all the ends and then...I had my days wrong. The gals had moved it because of Labor Day and I totally spaced. I showed up at the Hostess' house and she was sportin' her jammies. Sigh.

Oh well! At least it's done. I can't wait any longer to show you, so here it is. A kicking bag for baby, (So, yeah. It's a bag, for a babies to sleep in so the can't kick off the blanket) a free pattern from Ravelry. I loved doing the 'mini cable' (see top of bag) which was so easy it was ridiculous. Plus it is very sweet. I'm going to be incorporating that stitch into more things this fall!

And finally, a little stash of books to keep me occupied over these Autumn months...(as if I didn't have enough to do!)
