#allthebags

 

all the bagsThe other day I told Honore that I was planning a blog post about some of the bags I have made and since it has not been the best week, it seemed like something fun for my Friday.

The top two are Noodlehead patterns.  I really like these patterns and have found the directions pretty clear cut.  I have my eye on new bag from her site.  There is a free bag pattern (coming soon) that you should definately check out.

The tiny person backpack was my adaptation of the Noodlehead backpack above.  I pretty much just cut down the dimensions and rounded the edges to create a little backpack for our busy person (I think that will be his new nickname).

The polka dot project bag is from Lazy Gal designs and is the Becca bag.  It has a very fun zipper application.  I made four of these a few summer ago and gave all but one away.  Might need to make myself another one.

I have already seen sneak peaks of the upcoming Making Magazine and it looks like there are two bag patterns so I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Issue #6.  More bag making fun.  In fact,  some weekend bag making might wash away all the negative stuff from the work week.

Happy almost weekend!

Unraveled Wednesday

No unraveling here, just lots of casting on. I haven’t had the brain power to start the sleeves on my Vintersol so I picked up a long neglected hat and then cast on a vest for the tiny person. Both of these projects are good TV knitting and feel like they can be finished by the end of the month. But I do want to get back to those sleeves so give me your best advice on picking up the stitches in a way that doesn’t leave gaps or holes in the underarm.

Have a great Wednesday and be sure to visit Kat and friends today.

Three things

Three things I don’t want to forget:

Our tiny person has discovered puzzles and the determination on his face is something I don’t want to forget.

That same tiny person is a verbal processor and I love listening to him work things out one word at a time. I don’t want to forget these conversations.

Those sweet fingers, that giggle, the way he says gramma – I don’t want to forget these precious days.
