So, Sunday was a very productive day for me. I woke up early, tidied up a bit, read my paper and drank coffee. I caught up on the knitty boards and then went to Lowe's for a few necessities to hang some shelves. Then, well, then I went to The Peace of Yarn. I went there with the intention of buying this bag but then had second thoughts. I had heard several knitters comment that the lantern moon bags didn't really lend themselves to portability. Mostly because of their delicate nature. The clerk at the shop even mentioned that. I had also always had my eye on a bagsmith bag for a while. You see them in the magazines and you can just picture it sitting on the floor beside you on the couch as you merrily knit along. I'd never actually seen one in a shop yet though. Until Sunday.
Meet Agent Smith. Agent Bagsmith. He holds lots of stuff (including my new orange chibi that I finally found!)
I love all his pockets and nooks. He can fit nearly everything in there that I need on my current projects. Well, he could fit it all, but I refuse to put my Adamas Shawl and stuff in there, it's gotta stay separate and at home. If I try it in public, I'll screw the pooch. I just know it. But for some reason, I put the dental floss in him. Hmm...need to move that to the Adamas bag.
I look forward to grabbing him and taking him to my Stich 'n Bitch and my Knitting Meetup groups. Isn't he the most useful bag you have ever seen? I love me some bagsmith.
As I was preparing for Flash Your Stash (how are you all planning on doing this? Lots of pr0n up close, some storage shots, what? All of it?) Ripple couldn't stay out of trouble. And I couldn't resist grabbing the camera before I rescued him.
The little stinker. He just has to jump up on the shelf over my computer, then see where he can go from there. I'm still waiting for him to make it on top of the shelves housing my book stash (and part of my yarn stash, and my needles, *sigh*)
And now, after Sunday's shelf installing extravaganza, I have a veritable walkway around the walls of the office for him. You'll see.
Oh, and back to FYS. I have photos of my closet and shelves where I keep most of it. I have some close ups of the stash too. But, uh, how does this work? Do you have to label every photo with what it is? How many pr0n shots? Do you have to have one with the whole mountain that is your stash? I guess that'd be nice, if not a pain. This is my first time flashing, so I'd like to hear what you all have seen or done.
