Sock Knitting Bags!

Blogger has been having some problems publishing but hopefully it will go through now -I've only been fighting with this since 9 AM!

This weekend I finished up the sock knitting bags! I did these for the Sew? I Knit along since the April project is bags. I made the bag on the left for myself and the bag on the right for my Sockapaloooza pal - I thought it would look cute with her socks. Here is what the inside of my bag looks like:As you can see, its big enough to hold yarn for 2 pairs of socks, or as we learned during the Knitting Olympics, eight days worth of sock knitting. For a full tour of all the pockets, starting on the top left with the toggle clasp and going clockwise we have: my tiny calculator-on-a-keyring (found it at Staples), a little plastic box that I keep nail clippers, a yarn needle, and stitch markers in, the needle roll and a graph paper note card (also from Staples) with notes on my current pair of socks, a 6 inch clear Omnigrid ruler (I love these for checking gauge - you can get them in the quilting section of your crafts store), a crochet hook for picking up dropped stitches, a pencil, extra graph paper note cards, my new Mini Kacha Kacha, a tape measure, and I think there's room in the last pocket for my mini iPod, but I haven't checked it yet. There is also a big pocket on the outside of the bag for whatever. My Sockapaloooza Pal's bag is similar on the inside but instead of a needle roll, I found some small zipper bags that she can put her circular needles into. By the way, Sockapaloooza Pal, I was wearing your sock in the pattern picture (you're getting a copy of the pattern by the way) but my feet were clean and I totally washed both socks after the picture was made! I think we're supposed to mail the Sockapaloooza goodies at the first of next week!

UPDATE: Earlier this year I mentioned that Mindy (my sister in law) had entered her dogs Jack and Stephen in the MADD Strides For Change, well apparently they won the Top Dog award for the dog(s) who raised the most money! At least part of their prize was some bumblebee doggy toys that have already met an unfortunate end. Go Jack and Stephen!
