Remember the pooling problem I had a few posts back? Well, I frogged the sock and started a new sock (working out much better) but I loved the yarn that was pooling. I found the perfect project for it:
It's the beginning of the Morning Surf Scarf from Spin-Off magazine. I think Ravelry has a link to a free download for it. It is working out perfectly in this yarn. It will need some blocking in the end but I'm happy with how it's turning out!
In other news I thought I'd post about the new tote bag I got from an etsy shop called Reiter8. I mentioned this shop at one of our Freedom of Espresso knitting meetings. The shop is run by a woman in Brooklyn who makes bags, pillows and wallets from used sailboat sails! I rescued a sail from landfill death and Katherine turned it into a bag for me:
It's so well made, the perfect size for an everyday purse or some knitting and has three great pockets inside.
Love that bright green pop of color!
