Little Project Month

I have this massive blanket on the go at the moment, you know knit, purl, knit, purl, knit, purl, knit, purl, etc, etc, to compensate I've been doing lots of little; immediate gratification projects.
First I made Jo Sharp's Purse from Knit Issue 4. My lovely DH bought me some Lumina for my birthday and also 4mm Tasmanian oak needles so it was a pleasure to knit this. Plus it is my first bag of any kind. Unfortunately it is still in the top of my cupboard unused, as I just don't get out at night anymore. Three kids, my mum is not so willing to babysit in the evenings and Quill only goes 3 hours between feeds, oh well, one day hey?
Then I made the Baby Bib o' love, a cute little project from Mason Dixon Knitting, which by the way is a fantastic book..
It is made with the ever lovable Peaches and Creme in colour peppermint. Arwen has requested one too, so I have hers on the needles, to be made a little bigger though.
