I have been working on this book bag of and on for a couple of months. The reason is that large needles are difficult for me to work with. Also, the larger the project the heavier it gets and the end result is I get really sore shoulders. So this will be my last large project for a while. I'm not sure I like it but it will hold a lot of books.
I also finished the little socks. They are nice and lacy and I suspect I'll wear them a fair bit on my trip. They are made with Knit Picks Risata
, in the Buttermilk colorway and are made up of Cotton, Superwash
and Elite whatever that is, but they are nice and stretchy and when washed go back to their original shape.
I have yarn left over from these sock project and since I hate to waste yarn I cast on for some little wrist warmers. I don't have a pattern, I'm just kind of winging it and using the same lacy pattern.
No posting this weekend, I'm heading to the cabin for a little decompression after getting the news about my health. I wrote about that yesterday on my other blog
so I won't go into it here. There is no DSL
at the cabin so I won't even be tempted. I will return Tuesday, hopefully with another completed pair of socks. I wish everyone a lovely long weekend.
