KMKS success!!

January 24th, 2007

Can finally post my first FO of the new year… my KMKS bag. The yarn is soysilk but the colors seemed better in the skein… hope Sarah liked it. The colors may be meh but the yarn is just fabulous.

I made up the pattern- did a log cabin rectangle on the bottom and then worked a twisted knit stitch at each of the joins and the corners.

Turned out pretty cute, I think. 🙂

I also got my own package in the mail!

Look at that haul, huh? I musta been a good girl this year. 🙂

My KMKS spoiler was Kelle and she did a great job on the bag, didn’t she? (fair-isle!) Thank you, Kelle! I was super excited to see the frog tree alpaca and the Soak wool wash. I want my handspun to smell nice and I am loving the floral one.

Love this swap idea, Scout and Bev… I have been having a good time looking at the bags everyone has made. Have you seen Dorothy’s? wowee!

Bob gets a little jealous when I photograph anyone but him… as I was taking the shot above, this is what I saw when I looked to the left. Yeah. (those bully sticks are just gross when they get chewing them…eeeew.)

    I LOVE my bag….I’ve been looking at it trying to figure out how the heck you made it since it came. I actually like the colors, and it is just the right size for the socks I am finishing up before I start my Endpaper Mitts. Thank you again!

    Look at all your swap goodies! Fun!

    You really do have the cutest dog EVER! Every time I look at your blog and see a photo of him, I have to call to my teenage son to take a look. We both want a Boston Terrier but the hub says “no more dogs”. Darn! Keep the Bob photos coming so we can enjoy him vacariously.
