Bag no 2 (which is one of my fave bags right now):
This bag contains some swatches for my Short Row class tomorrow and a swatch for a new design. There are also some stitch holders, finished swatches. Knitting needles are Chiaogoo Twist and my 4mm short straight Signature Needles (the Rolls Royce of needles). The yarn is Artesano British Blueface Blend (blue), Manos Silk Blend (green) and Lang (variegated):
This laminated cotton birdie bag is another favourite right now.
And it contains a secret lace shawl on ChiaoGoo Twist circulars, the pattern and a row counter. I have a lot of row counters.
On the table, but moving into the swatch bag above, is a new design for a pair of Selbu inspired mittens. These are on hold until i finish the shawl agove. The project includes 2 balls of Quince & Co Chickadee knitted on Knit Pro Karbonz 3.25mm double pointed needles, waste yarn for the thumb and a row counter. I'll actually be ripping back these a bit before I continue. Not 100% happy.
When I came upstairs to my desk I found this owl bag on my desk. Let's see what's inside this bag.
Oh yes, it's my tow up Regia socks which I started a while ago. I'm knitting them on ChiaoGoo circulars but I've got a set of double pointed needles in the red tube, just in case I decide to switch from circulars. I'm not all that keen on knitting socks on circulars but I'm trying to make myself knit a whole pair of socks on circulars. I've got to the heel turn on the first sock. There's also a row counter. These have been on hold for a few weeks and I need to get going again. I NEED some socks. My feet are cold.
That was going to be the full extent of my confession. But the truth is that I do have several more project bags with abandoned or on hold projects. So I thought I'd be brave and confess. Problem is that I know there are more than these three bags, at least one more, but I can't find it which is a bit worrying.
The blue yarn is in a bag from Accessorize which is probably a toiletry bag but I bought it to use as a water proof 'knitting on the beach' bag. It contains a cardigan for Simon in King Cole Merino dk which I started on a trip to Spain either 4 or 7 years ago. I'm thinking i should finish this soon. Just hope it still fits him.
In the bag at the back is a shawl knitted in Drops Baby Alpaca Silk which I started last winter. Another one I must finishe soon as the yarn is so gorgeous. And finally in the smal bag at the front is a pair of socks on double pointed needles. The double points are secure in the red tube. Another pair of socks i must finish but sadly I'm only nearly at the heel flap on sock 1.
