I'm glad that so many of you seem to have gotten something out of yesterday's post. Today's post is going to be very simple - look! A Stripy Bag!
I've now worked 8 stripes (16 rounds) of the side of the bag and it measures 6 inches from the bag bottom at this point. I'm not sure how tall I'll go on the bag - I figure I'll know when to stop when I get there. Caleb is already suggesting things to put in the bag - mostly his stuff and Ramius. I'm not sure why he wants Ramius in a bag - I'll have to keep an eye on him.
Just in case you were wondering why it's been 99% crochet around here since the Olympics ended, I needed to give my hands a break. Knitting the Franket, as heavy as it is, even with it sitting in my lap and as much of the weight distributed away from my hands as possible, I was starting to feel it in my hands. That's your first warning to take a break, so I jumped to crochet, which uses my hands differently. I think I'll bring back some non-Franket knitting tomorrow though.
