The Weekender Bag

DSCN6985Kale,lettuce radishes,peas….they’re all growing so fast! My current harvesting basket just isn’t large enough to hold it all. I started this weekenders bag with harvesting in mind but it’s coming out so nicely that I’m considering making it a project/store/etc bag and finding something else to help carry the harvest back from the garden.

Sweater Handbag {KCCO/Yarn Along}

DSCN9926A neighbor passes us down some clothes recently. One of the items, a blue sweater, was way too big but I liked the knit pattern. It made me think of a bag I saw on Pinterest. Coincidently, sitting right next to the sweater was a plaid shirt that didn’t fit anyone either. The two went together so well I grabbed up both and got to work.

DSCN9914After “borrowing” some handles from another bag it’s ready to go! I’m super pleased. It’s big enough to hold my knitting and whatever I’m reading at the moment yet it’s not too bulky either. Just right to bring along in the car- just in case the little guys decide to take a  nap.

{KCCO & Yarn Along} Noah’s Sweater

A few weeks ago Noah’s vest, I mean sweater, was officially finished with some sleeves.

DSCN9626It was time to dye it! Noah had been waiting forever (he said) for this part. So we decided to use a couple of blue kool-aid packets as the dye.

It looked quite electric.

DSCN9639Noah immediately wanted to ditch the spoon. Since it was just kool-aid I gave the go ahead and he dove in.

DSCN9643Sadly, it wasn’t the right shade of blue. It was more of a blueish gray.

 I also had a regular dye packet in reserve. Noah opted to use it.  Since it contained some pretty harsh chemicals I did the second round of dyeing. And boy is it blue now!

DSCN9659It’s a tad big but that hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm. Room to grow, I say.

DSCN9683And while we’re talking about Noah – he made his first bag on the sewing machine! A small drawstring bag for carrying around all those little things: legos, coins, small rocks, marbles etc.
