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.”

Started the shut up and knit it vest


I am knitting an eccentric argyle. It may be a vest. If it goes well, and there is enough yarn, (As it appears there will be) I will add sleeves and it will be a sweater. I am knitting it side to side because the diamonds are longer that way. This is the worsted weight, on size 7 needles. I'm excited!
This is from Dave Daniel's hand dyed Cabin Cove Mercantile yarn. Most knitters are inclined to buy it, then keep it as a pet. It's sooo pretty in the skeins. It's so soft and yummy and pretty! But it deserves to be knited up into a garment or article of use and delight, hence the knit-along.
And this is the square beret I knitted out of multi-plied weaving yarn while I was cogitating a design for the vest. (maybe a sweater)
I have tried on this hat in several different orientations (over one eye, on the back of the head, with points horizontal or diagonally oriented) and it's cute as a basket full of hound dog puppies any way you wear it! I may make a few more of these. Mmmmm- what a shape for cables!
More ideas than time to knit them. Ain't life wonderful?!!

    Those colors are all so perfect together. This is going to be a treat for me to see your work.

    any chance of getting a pattern for the square beret? I'm thinking I'd try my hand at the cables.

    The walking part of the LA Marathon is only 5K, so I'm good.

    You sound like me - there's just too much to knit and not enough time!!!
    Started new socks last night - why I've got plenty of other stuff in my basket!!

    I love that yarn... it looks touchable in the extreme!!! and the eyeballs--well, I think it's funny that folks would think they're real... And I think they're perfect...it still cracks me up! (Andyou know I need a really good laugh these days!)
