I always hated playing tag
Especially when I'm it. Rain finally tagged me. Called me out on my avoidance techniques. I knew she'd been tagged on a few things lately, so I'll admit it, I avoided her blog for a bit, hopeing against hope I could play the "I didn't see it" card. Well, I saw it. So, here it is. My knitting bag. Y'all have met Agent Bagsmith before. But what's in him nowadays? Here he is at homebase. My dining room table that I bought at Fred's for all of $79. I love Fred's. I paid more for my swift and ball winder than I did for my table. Heh. Priorities. So, in the bottom pocket, we have my reference pamphlets (which I have yet to actually use) measuring tapes (3!), bobbins and dental floss for lifelines. In the top pocket we have my Chibi collection (save the whales! Collect them all!) and my stitch markers. Of course, that's not all my stitch markers. Oh, no. This is the best thing I never got around to throwing away. Thank God a caboodle product finally serves a useful purpose to me other than floor decoration under my bed. This was marketed as an earring holder. No no. I have a better use for it. In one side, my coilless safety pins and larger stitch markers: In the other side, small stitch markers and point protectors So, what all is crammed inside you ask? Well, we have the Best Foot Forward socks both in progress and on holders. Pattern book as well. The in progress one is my purse knitting during the week. The Fortissima 1776 socks, needles awaiting stitches for the second. In the inner pockets we have Hand lotion, chapstick, a portable pen, clover wheel, and scrap yarn. Oh, more stitch markers. These from NoNoKitty. And lingering on the bottom, always, my Knitter's Companion. Tucked into the inner pockets we have my pens and crochet hooks Scissors, ruler Needles - I keep my dishcloth sized needles in here all the time (6s - 9s) and those big ones, I have no idea what they're doing in there. I put those back where they belong after this photo was taken. I put those addis back where they belong too: Which lives on the bottom shelf of my primary backup station. The office bookshelf. Needles on top of the shelf. The yarn closet. Where my project bags (empty) hang out, and also my sock yarn, miscellaneous yarns and beading materials linger. And there you have it. But wait, I know you saw something in the first picture that probably peaked your curiosity. I restarted Clapotis. AmyKnitty actually commented on my blog the other day(!) and suggested that the Blue Heron Rayon/Metallic would make a beautiful Clap. She was so right. So now I must tag 3 people and tell them to go take some pics. So, ok then. Of you go Zonda, Bezzie and Pyewacket!
