I'm a joiner!
So I joined the Sock a Month KAL! I'm really enjoying knitting socks but I need some motivation to get some done. The best part is that it is a low pressure KAL. If you don't finish a pair that month its no big deal, but if you do you might win a prise! How fun is that?!
I have acquired a good amount of sock yarn over the past year or two and would like to see them as socks. Don't get me wrong the balls/skeins are pretty by themselves but I hear them at night whispering to me that they long to be knit! Plus I feel guilty when I see some sock yarn and want to buy it but I have some at home that isn't being made into socks. With this KAL I'll be able to buy more yarn!
Because of my new KAL and sock swap I've wanted to get a cute little sock knitting project bag. I've seen a few around blogland but right now I don't have the funds to purchase one. A few weeks ago I cut off some jeans and made them into capri's. I didn't want to toss out the bottom part of the leg because I knew it could be used for something.
Yesterday it came to me! I'll make that extra denim into a sock bag! So I gathered my supplies and on the way to the zoo, I made this! Sure its not the cutest but I like it, and for no money, what can be better than that?! I cut little holes in the hem and weaved a shoe lace through for a drawstring!
I've been working on G's buddy bag, its coming along. I did decide to do one thing differently. So I wouldn't have to seam up the bottom later I did the first two rows in a k1 sl1 and then transferred the sts to the correct needles and started knitting in the round. Now I have one less seam to do! I was quite excited about that!
