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.”

another knit

A longwhile ago, I got some pink and grey silk and wool roving and added it to the stash. In time, I spun some delightful thick and thin grey yarn and added it to the yarn stash.  Recently,  I needed something fairly mindless to knit, so I began mitered squares with the soft pink and grey silk and merino yarn.  So soft.  It needs to be a scarf.  five feet of scarf later, I see lots more  yarn and decide to do my other favorite thing which is to add a ruffle.  One ruffle was good, and two, which just finished off the yarn, was even better.  Now, the scarf goes into the finished objects stash.  Probably off to the orphange.  If I decide to keep it for gifting, I might bead the edges. 

But for now, I'm making a hat for my brother-in-law the scout master.  Again, I went stash diving.  This time I pulled out a skein I bought because it was a colorway that I never buy. Time to stretch my creativity.  I usually go with pink, blue, purple, so I bought some Iron River Ranch hand dye in yellow, green and a teensy bit of orange.  For some reason, it makes me think of dinosaurs, so I am knitting a dinosaur hat for the beloved BIL.  Stay tuned for photos.

Also on the schedule, The darling Ms, LG brought over some scrap fabric from the stash clearance of a friend of hers.  I adore other people's scraps.  Again, colors I would never choose.  Especially lime, avacado and turquoise.  Time to whip together another quilt!   I have one quick and dirty stripper in shades of blue to finish off, and then, play with new colors!! Woohoo!

    The scarf is simply lovely.

    The upcoming quilt in lime, avocado and turquoise sound gorgeous - some of my favourite colours (I'm unable to choose just one)!
