After Thing 1 I ran down to Whippersnappers (you need to scroll to the bottom, they’re in alphabetical order). Lynn, the very nice owner, suggested double pulls versus the one. The ‘real’ fabric is from her…her store is like walking into a paint box!
I bought the fabric maybe a month ago, enough to make three different color schemes of these bags, maybe some short needle rolls, maybe some notions pouches. I’m going to see how mine holds up before making more of the small project bags.
And why, you may ask, do I want a small project bag? Well, in part, who wouldn’t? But, also, ::nerves to be saying out loud:: I’m going on a trip! May 16 I leave Portland at 6 am (which means getting out of here by 3:30 or so…), and after flying all over I end up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where I’ll meet my mom!, and my aunt (her sister) and uncle (the aunt’s husband). We are doing this trip. It is an incredible and wonderful gift from mom, I am so looking forward to the time with her, my aunt and uncle, spending time on a train, seeing all the parks, just the whole thing! Here’s where you all might be able to help me…they all fly out of Albequerque May 25, as do I, but I land in Phoenix and don’t leave there until after lunch on the 26th. Do you know any knitters in Phoenix who would want to get breakfast/coffee/hang around and knit on that morning?
Contest update…if more than one person guesses correctly, I’ll pick a winner at random. If nobody guesses correctly, everybody is in and I’ll draw a random winner.
