Wheee! That was fun!

Quick and fun weekend projects: gotta love'em! I know, I just posted this morning, but I love me a finished object. It isn't a purse, but rather a little bag for carrying a ball of yarn. I predict that it will come in handy this summer. When you knit outside in the summer, don't you hate to put your yarn down onto a grubby picnic table? And if you put it on your lap, it rolls off! Well, this little bag is going to solve my outdoor knitting problems.

Pattern: from Spin Off, Summer 2006 (I bought the magazine from Interweave because of the cute sheep puppets).
Yarn: Orlec
Hook: 2.25mm Yes, I crochet, but it's been so long, it looks like quite the mess. I'll bet a good blocking would cure it.

  1. I absolutely love that bag and will be looking for a copy of the magazine. What a fantastic idea...and yes, putting yarn on an "unknown" surface is tempting the gods of fiber.

  2. Wow! That was quick! Looks great. I'll have to find a copy of that pattern. You can never have too many things to hold yarn.

  6. I love the "mess" as you call it. I wish I could crochet messes so quickly :-) LOL. I love that bag! It is gorgeous. I used to be able to crochet, but, like knitting, gave it up when I was 12. My mom still has a whole set of crochet hooks that I might have to steal, oops, I mean borrow. My bad.

  9. I love the bag too. I'm considering sewing one up real quick with leftover fabric I have. Now if only I can get close enough to the sewing machine ... just have to move YARN!
