Go Shopping

Well, I’ve definitely been busy in the last 2 weeks. I’ve noticed that NaNeBloMo… something has started – blog once a day for 30 days, I think. Well, I used to do that. In the beginning, back in 2004, I used to write something every day. But then since then I noticed that the bloggers that people read don’t just write – they have photos. Every day! So that was the end of that.

Thank God for Twitter, which I put on the sidebar here, and Facebook, so I can use my one-liners and keep up with blogging when I have photos to share.

Well, I sort of do. I’ve actually completed 6, I think, market bags, and put aside one sweater project, deciding there is very little chance I’ll get from 10 sweaters to 12 for NaKniSweMoDo this year. Oh well. I started the previous “sweater a month” KAL and got nowhere near 10 then, so I’m happy in this case. And I do also have a distinct lack of WIPs. Just a few more hanging around, that I hope to deal with after I finish my market bag project. I hope to finish 22 for Christmas, or by Mother’s Day at least.

I already showed you my second market bag that I made for my friend Laura. Well, I finally found a picture of the first one:


and my most recent *failure* – I knitted up a giant squid! It ended up being 3 feet long, I think! So I’ve ripped it back and am re-knitting it smaller. But here it is in it’s natural habitat:


I hope to have more bags to show you soon!

    Wow, 10 sweaters and six market bags? You’re on a roll!

    Thankfully not many people are doing that post every day in Nov thing. I’ve ended up the last couple of years skipping blogs altogether because it just got crazily overwhelming to read/comment on them all.

    The bag is awesome, though the 3 foot long version does look a bit like a yarny condom… oh, well. It looks like it would hold loads of stuff.
