I've had an idea for a project bag for a while, and KMKS gave me the chance to try it out, so my pal will get the prototype. I used jewel-toned fabrics that my older sister gave me several years ago as a part of a huge stack of fat quarters. I love purple and green together; many of my quilts were made in this color combo.
Here is a peek inside. Like so many of us, my pal carries her small projects in ziplock baggies. I wanted her to have a bag for small projects, which is why everything looks squished--she will not likely carry so much in it. I purchased Eunny's Anemoi pattern (I bought myself a copy, too!), light and dark green yarn, a chibi, two sets of dpns in the right sizes (I hope--the different sized mittens call for different sized needles), and a crochet hook. I also added a stack of post-it notes to help keep track of the charts. I used the big round handles so that the bag can easily hang off of a chair. When I'm out at SnB, I like to keep my bag off of the ground, so I always like handles that accommodate that.
Later today or tomorrow I'll post pictures of the beautiful yarn I recieved for the Interweave Spin to Knit Swap. I've taken a short break from spinning my shawl yarn to spin for my pal, and I'll be sure to show you a picture once it's plyed and set.
Thanks to everyone who commented, both on the blog and privately, about my last post.
