Grab Bag

It's been a while since
I got the urge to sew.
That urge struck today 
and shortly thereafter
I had a new bag
to tote my knitting in.

My pattern came from
a 2008 copy of
Fast and Fabulous Quilting Ideas
by Better Homes and Gardens.
The instructions are here.

I plan to make another, but think 
I will shrink the size of the bag
and shorten the longer strap just a touch.
Yepper, that's the plan...

On the Fence

I'm not sure if it is dorkier
that I just had to take a picture
of my knitting when I laid 
down my needles and saw
my initial...
or that I took the time to
finish writing my name
and post it.

Why the Ruche?

I never would have guessed
that I could knit faster
than I sew,
but here's the proof:
Baby Doll's sweater, knit in two months
Boy's quilt, in its 13th year of incompletion.

Pattern:  Ruched Yoke Tee from
Interweave Knits Spring 2011
Yarn:  Blue Sky Alpacas Skinny Cotton
