Did I mention I LOVE bags, pouches, totes, anything which holds anything? And I want to learn new things, always. There is this tutorial (isn't Internet wonderful informative?) at Happy Things for a lined drawstring bag. It's a tiny one, only about 6"x7", but you can use up all your left over fabrics. They make cute little gift bags. My camera was very happy in it for a while. Unfortunately I couldn't get a nice shot of the inside. I used red fabric with tiny little white tots on it. This was of course a trial (with no noticeable errors). But - I had a bigger gift bag in mind.
The following is the big brother gift bag version of the tiny one. A friend of mine is going to get this with the yarn I'll put in it. She reads this blog, but will never guess it's for her. That's why I can show you this.
The inside fabric has little blue stars on it.
Here's the yarn. It's Artyarns Silk Rhapsody, color # 141. It's a totally wonderful color combination. I would LOVE to keep it, but I'm strong. You can get it at Judy's online store. As so often, the colors don't show up as well as they look when holding in hand.
And there's a wet dog, inspecting ...
stay tuned for Part 3 ...
And there's some knitting content as well, even though it's not me knitting it. Deb made my Sakura shawl, and it turned out wonderful! She did a great job! You really can use any kind of yarn, and it will look good.
One thing's for sure. I'm fighting the urge to cast on socks. I'm addicted. I think I know now how people with addictions feel, when they can't get their fix! But it's ridiculous, haven't I enough projects going on , to just want to knit one sock after another? What IS IT about sock knitting? I guess I have to hide my sock yarn and try to forget it for a while. Out in the open as it is, the temptation is almost too great. Any all you bloggers with these wonderful socks all the time DON'T HELP! ;o)
