The last two weeks have been filled by work commitments and I've mostly been too tired to think when I was home. Which means that having a lot of stockinette and garter projects going was a good plan. Despite the best intentions, the top down cardigan isn't to the sleeve split yet, but the red socks are progressing steadily- I'm just past the cuff of the second one.
And last night, I did take a few minutes to whip up a small bag. There's a game (Carcassonne) which involves players drawing small cardboard tiles without seeing what they are- while this can be done by simply turning the tiles face-down, drawing them from an opaque bag is easier. We already have a bag- it came with one of the expansion sets for the game- but one of my husband's friends also has a set, and my husband asked if I'd make a bag for his friend. Since it's dead easy, I was happy to do so. Hence:
It's just got a simple casing with a drawstring. And I'm sure the reason my husband even thought to ask, was that last month I had made a smaller bag for holding dice. I put it on my FO list, but hadn't gotten around to a picture:
And now I want to cast on something else. But have been dithering about what. I'm torn between a cowl, more socks (I need to choose the next pattern anyway), or just whipping through a few mittens. But then there is a baby due in the spring whom I'd like to knit for. Decisions, decisions! Fortunately, stockinette sweaters and socks give me plenty of time to think it over.
