All the Other Things

I don't  want to bore you with one shawl all the time and I don't  want  to bore me.  I keep a number of things with me to work on regularly.  And there is always something for the days when you screw up and have only begun to sit and chat with your knit group. 

This is something I don't  think I've  shown since I cast it on.

 It's  a Holey Square Shawl.  For a free pattern you get a lot of bang for your buck.  It's  exactly right for those laces that hide the patterns of finely knit lace.  For these challenging laces, this way of knitting holes makes sense. 

I don't  knit a lot on this one but I was very glad to have it today.  I messed up a spot on my Bridgewater and pulled this out.  A place for everything and everything in it's  place.

And right behind the lace is my new pride and joy. 
 My new knitting bag.  It is a Thermos brand and is once again is meant as a cooler bag for cans. 
My first bags were beer can coolers so this stay dry no matter where you take it bag is just right.  And classier than I ever dreamed of back in the day!
 Here is a shot to give you an idea of it's  size.  Great for sweaters and big bulky knitting. 
A big open bag.  Suits me fine and exactly what I need right now.
