Fiesta del Sol bag

hey hey! I am almost finished with the Fiesta del Sol bag! I don't know if I am going to add the pom poms like the pattern directs, though.....MAYBE I can take a picture of it to show!! It's very colorful, though not as long as the pattern, either, because I ran out of red worries, though. I improvised and I like it... SOOO..... now I have started the Caledon felted bag which I hope to whip up quickly. Then, contrary to my queue on ravelry, I think I might try socks OR socks and the Hobo Bag by Stitch Poet simultaneously!!!(oooo)

Yes, we are here!

Yes, and I am crawling in and out of boxes.....can't find the cord to my printer and speakers....but I do have my camera (I think I know where it is!!) Everything is upside down...oh dear--but I think I am handling it pretty well.
It has been hot and we have been making great use of the pool, and we even taught puppy Lalo to swim, and now he loves it! Maya would bark at him at first, because she doesn't necessarily like swimming. She will wade but that's it. When Lalo went for a full fledged jump in, Maya about had a heart attack and barked at him as if to say "You Fool!" --but she then realized that Lalo was having a blast. Now she puts up with all the attention he gets. Oh, to be wild and crazy. - Oh, to be sensible and calm....
Hopefully soon I can post a pic or two of our new digs.
Knitting wise, I am almost done with my felted Fiesta del Sol bag, and I finished Karin's cami. She likes it, although she is long waisted; I'm thinking I could have lengthened it a bit.
