Stripy Bag

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.

You raise a very good point about the pain issue. I have been taking a knitting break for the last three weeks, and the pain that I experience in mu left thumb has totally gone away. I wasn’t sure what was causing it. My left thumb doesn’t do a great deal when I knit but now I know that is the cause. And if I want to knit for the rest of my life, I know that I am going to have to be smarter about it. The knitting marathons are going to need to be modified, and the idea of adding crochet may be very helpful. I am thinking that my left thumb would do even less in crochet. Thank you for the new perspective - also really appreciated the very thorough post on picking up stitches!
