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.”

knitting has occurred

On the flight to Australia, I knitted a pair of hunting gloves for a friend of DH. This is the charcoal alpaca and silk roving I bought and sent to Dave Daniels who then spun it and sent it back. To keep the gifting going, I made the gloves for I-Dad's 50th birthday present.



Then, using the remainder of the silk and alpacca, and some Mystery Batt yarn I had just spun up, I started a wrap while we traveled around, and flew back. The mystery batt is not going to go far enough, so I am adding in some white yarn to extend it. It should be a nice warm wrap at the very least, and I do love the mitered squares!

    Mitered squares are so much fun! I love how leftovers of sock yarn look in them.

    Wow! Someone got some nice gloves and with the silk added, they will be warm and long lasting.

    I've played with mitered squares. It looks like I will be playing with them again.

    Lovely gloves! But as far as I'm concerned anyone who makes a wrap or anything else big from mitered squares is a candidate for sainthood. (Or the asylum, I can never decide which.)
