A Little Breathing Room


I’ve been having a lot of discomfort in my thumbs while knitting my oh-so-loved socks with my oh-so-loved yarn, so decided to put it aside for awhile.


I found this really great yarn on line — at a website called that is called Just Our Yarn — and bought a couple skeins to make a scarf that hopefully won’t make me itch. This is the colorway that I bought — it is Indulgence in magenta, deep forest green and electric blue. Contents are75% Merino/15% Angora/10% Silk. The pattern that I am using is Diagonal Lace Scarf designed by Helena Frank. I found it on Midnight Purls while surfing in the wee hours of the morning a couple weeks ago. Check out her site if you have a few minutes. Lots of great reading and other stuff, like great patterns!!

But anyway…..

I’ve knitted and felted a couple of bags but I don’t like them for carrying my knitting around. They’re great for other things, but not my knitting. Decided to make a drawstring bag from the literally hundreds of pounds of fabric that I have stashed in my closet. It didn’t do much to reduce my stash, but it turned out pretty well. It’s about 9 1/2″ tall with a 6″ x 6″ square bottom. Just big enough for a small project. Now Darling Daughter wants one for her makeup, except she doesn’t want it as tall. I really need to retire so I can stay home and knit and sew all of the projects that I have rattling around in my head.
