I’ve been thinking a lot this week about how weird is is that knitting makes me so happy. I mean, when you really boil it down, I’m just playing with sticks and string. Granted, I’m an easily amused gal, but come on… how can something so plain cause so much joy? How did I turn into this person who always has at least one project going and generally travels with said projects? All I know is that it’s a fairly easy craft once you get the hang of it, it’s not horribly expensive (until you become a Yarn Snob which I haven’t yet), and it feeds my everlasting need to be creative as much as humanly possibly every day. I honestly think, that if I could work in a yarn shop part time it would be like a bit of personal sunshine shining down on me. I’m just as happy browsing yarn as I am browsing books and drinking coffee… plus, Knitters generally rock. 😀 To be surrounded in people who rock is like my dream job (not to mention wearing blue jeans daily… that’s another dream). 🙂 Screw the two degrees I got in college, let me immerse myself in yarn! As long as it still pays my mortgage of course. LOL

Anyway… I really logged on to post some more pictures.

Here’s the sock I began the other night. Technically it’s not just one pattern. I used the Magic Toe Up Toe from Knitty and now I’m kinda sorta following a pattern I had laying around Pom Pom socks, but I’m not making these into Pom Pom socks, I’m just following the directions to turn the heel and then I’ll finish the socks as normal full length socks, not short anklets. The yarn is from ThreadBear and I bought it forever ago and don’t know the brand or the colorway anymore, but it’s pretty isn’t it?


And, my felted bag is dry. 🙂 Here’s an up the skirt shot of the inside…

Ooh... felty...

I can’t seem to get a good picture of the outside yet. Maybe in the daylight. 🙂 I’m thinkin’ that this bad boy could be a great knitting project bag. This one is mom’s though… I’ll make another one for me. 🙂

And just because… Devvie-Doodlebutt himself. 🙂
