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.”

And the knit goes on . . .

I was given a skein of pink acrylic. Squeaky pink acryllic. Stuf that you knowused to be soda bottles. But some fols like the complete washability, and sometimes squeaky acrylic is the thing to use. So I took a scrap of the remaining exploded clown, and a skein of pink acrylic, and made some mitts for my favorite waitress.

Then I grabbed my crochet hook, and grannied a bonnet. Granny squares are SO versatile! This goes to the orphange, and I see a sweet baby face framed by that ruffle. Vomit will wash out easily.




Squares are round when you assemble them right.
Now I want to burn through a skein of pale yellow soda bottles, and then I'm gonna hit the odds and ends in the stash and hammer down on Christmas gifties. Oh, and I want to make a White Elephant gift for the exchange at work. Hmmm - a hat with tentacles? A Medusa hat? Maybe, if we go see the latest Harry Potter, I'll do a few miles of i-cord and braid a potholder of many colors. Or not. We'll see.

    Acrylics do have a place in the world, not everyone can deal with wool.
