Speaking of work bags, Mr needles did not want to buy the beer on sale with the cool new insulated beer backpack (his brother told me about it), but he did go to the garage, and came up with these.
I was really thrilled to see the long one. Mr needles said I had previously pooh-poohed the long one. That was before I was knitting. With longer needles and larger projects that long flatter shape might just be the ticket.
This means that I am going to have to go out and find some little clear zipper bags to organize everything that is not yarn in the work bag.
While I was playing with my new bags, and cleaning out and sorting the big behemoth yarn basket (only the cat liked it), clearing laundry and sewing area shelves, I came across this.
For any of you Avon aficionados, this is a little kitty is an Avon Cream Sachet. It dates from the early 60's and I think I would have been about 8 or 9 when it was given to me by my mom. The really funny thing was that when I opened it up, it was full of these. Well there was only 5 or 6 in there - I put in the rest of my supply. These date from the 80's, when I last tried to break the spell that was knitting.
I finally put the lace on the needles. A few false starts, and possibly a few more on the horizon, I have no doubt of that.
