Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

popup paws

RW is going to be one of those ski-patrol angels who rescue hurt and frightened people, and he needs to wear a red jacket. So I figured, he could use some red gloves to go. Pop-up paws give lots of warmth AND dexterity. They're just a pair of short-fingered mits with a flip-over cap knitted on to the back. And they have extra long cuffs which do wonders to retain warmth.

This is a good replication of the color. It's Weally, weally wed!

This shows how the finger-tips are freed when the top pops off.

I had some of that mystery mohair blend left, and less than a ping-pong ball sized ball of left-over Lorna's Laces Lakeview. Added to that was a space of time when I could do mindless knitting that didn't need to be watched. And hey, look, another sock! Named, of course, "Lakeview in the Mist."

    Oooh I LOVE the Pop-up gloves -- just what I need -- something to warm my widdow finders until I need to adjust my binoculars while birdwatching. Where, oh where do you get the pattern?
