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 again

Hat cast on and mostly knitted during "John Carter."It was a thoroughly enjoyable movie, but since I grew up on the tales of Barsoom and the "steely thews"of the greatest Jeddak of Helium it was like meeting an old friend.    I had wondered how they would handle the multiplication of shoulders on the green Martians, and found that the special effects were quite satisfactory.  I hope they bring the books out again.  I would love to return to the red planet with the two moons.

So, after finishing the hat, there was lots of yarn left.  What to do? Another hat?  How about a scarf that plays with the lovely stripeynessof the yarn?  The mitered triangle scarf was just the thing!  Loved the yarn.  It was a whole forest of color.  Gold, russet, brown, deep green, maroon, cranberry, brick, and sundry shades between.  Wish I could remember where I got it.  Iron River Yarns I think, but I have a mind like a steel sieve and all sorts of details fall out.  Dave Daniels, does this look familiar?

I'm trying hard to reduce the yarn stash, but I already have more sweaters than I can wear, and DH is such a human heater that he almost never wears sweaters.  I suppose I could knit a few sweaters up and just keep them on hand in case someone shows up cold.

And now I'm off to sew down the fabric stash.  At least I have a place to send the quilts.

    What a great set! That yarn is pretty. And, what a great idea to make a scarf in that pattern. Nice!

    Whatever yarn it is, it makes a nice set.
