Yarning along


When I met J's mum for a little shopping last week she gifted me with this sack full of delicious goodies.



I didn't eat or use them all yet but I found the perfect use for the sack - my new knitting bag.

What you see in here is the beginnings of the second sock - there may yet be two to keep all my toes warm.


All the knitting of late has left my hooks idle, so I thought a little project with some yarn from the stash may just ease my yearning to start a much bigger hooky project when I really should be finishing some of my started projects.


Enjoying this little piece in pretty colours - no pattern following here, just making it up as I go and looking forward to new mittens to keep my hands warm while I knit.


Reading this week has been this intriguing tale by Lesley Pearce entitled Gypsy - the story of four young English migrants adventures in America and Canada in the late 19th century.

Joining all the talented participants yarning along this week.

I am so jealous of all the people that can crochet out there! I can't seem to manage it! And that book looks really interesting. I love that period in American history, although I don't know much about Canada at that time.

I have yarn and projects and materials tucked away in all sorts of bags and totes. Right now, can't really decide what I want to do. I was away from blogland for a week while on vacation, and have spent the last two days finding all sorts of inspiration. Maybe my brain is overloaded and that's why I can't decide. :) Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

That bag is so beautiful - what a lovely gift! And I love the colors you're using in your crocheting. So bright & cheerful. (I think I have that fabric underneath as well in my stash somewhere. Love it!) xo

That's the perfect knitting bag . Love the colours too!

I really need to make myself some sort of carry all for my sewing projects. My tatty Ipad box doesnt look half as classy.

I love the idea of gifting things in reusable fabric bags---seems so Japanese! and what a great use of all those odds and ends (or in my case, just acquired and never used fabric!)! Lovely pieces to go in it, too!!!

Just the perfect bag for your knitting.... Oh how nice to knit yourself some cosy socks and mittens but I love the fabrics you are using to lie your crochet on.....
